Lego Challenge: Boat Building and Floating

Are your children complaining that they are bored on this rainy summer day?  My Lego challenge of the day is to build a boat.  The boat can be any size, color and can use any length of brick.  Be creative you can even add Lego people to your boat.  Ask your children to talk/write about whether they think their boat will float or sink in the water.  At noon we will attempt to float our creations and the children can either talk or write about the outcome.

You may want to explain to the children how objects float before they start this experiment.
