Sinking Ships for Science
Inches, pounds, minutes... In first grade, your child is learning about different forms of measurement, such as length, weight, capacity, and time. Bring the learning home with this fun activity! Create a boat out of aluminum foil and set sail across the ocean (er...your bathtub) for a lesson on the measurement of capacity. See how many pennies can fit into the boat before it sinks! Your child will have a great time refining his science skills, while mastering the concept of capacity.
