One afternoon, the Kindergartners were challenged to create their very own Mayflower. Using only a sheet of tin foil, the Kinders had to create a boat that would hold all of the Pilgrims looking to get to America. We planned out our design, brainstormed with our partner, and then started building! During the first test, there were several ships that only help 5-6 Pilgrims. The Kindergartners then problem solved with their partner, trying to discover a way to build a stronger, better ship.
By the end of our experiment, there were Mayflowers that were holding over 90 Pilgrims (which was all that Miss Keenan had!)
