World Around Us Challenge

Week Beginning 15th June


This week we are going to make a boat.

We are going to make a boat and see how far it can travel in the wind.


You don’t need very much – Just one or two sheets of paper.

Watch this video and it will tell you how to fold the paper to make a boat.


Now put the boat into some water – maybe a bath or large sink.

Use a fan or you can blow to make the wind if you don’t have a fan.


How far does your boat travel?


Can you make two boats and have a race?

Which boat won?



Can you make a better boat out of different materials?  Perhaps this one could have a sail.
