My Experiment at home ! :)

During this weekend….

 

I’ve work on a experiment….

called…

How many paper clips can be put on the clay boat

My experiment is about how many paper clips can be put on the clay boat before it sinks

I predict that the boat will sink when I put 20 paperclips on the clay/plasticine boat.

What do you need: A little bit of clay/plasticine,paper clips and a big bowl of water

First step: Shape your clay/plasticine into a boat

Second step: Test the boat if it floats in the water if not modify it

Third step: Float the boat in the big bowl of water

Fourth step: Start adding paper clips onto the boat until it sinks

Then you’re Finish!!!!! 🙂
