Summary of project:
- Answer the questions about Island of the Blue Dolphin and canoes to earn "money" (popsicle sticks).
- Based on the money you earn, decide what supplies you want to buy to build your canoe.
- Design you canoe using the supplies you will purchase. Design if done first on paper.
- Build your canoe. Predict how many supplies (marbles) it will hold.
- Test your design. We will see how slow or fast the canoes sink.
- Reflect on you success….or failure. How can you improve next time?
