Year 5/6 Challenge

Yesterday, Owl Class were given the challenge to help theme park owners create a new log flume ride by investigating which container would be the most buoyant.

In groups, we discussed different ways to carry out the enquiry and all came up with lots ideas. Some of us put the same amount of weight into each container and measured how high the water was on the container, while others added weights one of a time and then measured how deep in the water the container had sunk.

Next we will be comparing our results to come up with a conclusion about the best shape and size of a log flume ride.
