Welcome to Mrs. Gregory's Class

Building a Better Boat


In honor of Columbus Day, we spent some time learning about the explorer who famously sailed the ocean blue.  Though we discovered he wasn't much of a "discoverer," he was known for his perseverance, and that is worth celebrating!


The students had just a few simple materials, a can-do attitude, and a challenge: can you build something that floats?  After some initial success, we encouraged each other to improve our designs, too.

The testing phase was a little splashy...but we did it!
