One thing that I have done so far in this school year is go to the Maritime Museum for a field trip. Going to the Maritime Museum was fun because we made tinfoil boats. The tinfoil boats were tested for how much weight in pennies it could
hold before it sank. We also went on a flat bottom boat. The boat was copied from a Revolutionary War boat. Flat bottom boats can hold more weight than a roundbottom. That is important because the Revolutionary War boat had a lot of cannons. We also made little tug boats out of wood. My favorite part was when the tinfoil boats sank. That was one of the times that I had a lot of fun this year. By Grade 3 Student
