DGH’s Cardboard Boat Racing Teams!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Ms. Read took two teams of grade 8 students to the TLDSB’s annual Cardboard Boat races yesterday.  What did the students have to do?  Each team had to construct cardboard boats designed to carry the maximum amount of weight and to be the fastest to cross the pool.  It is all about the creativity and planning.  In the pics below you will see boats in various states of design and action.

 

The Girls’ Team won their heat for weight bearing.  The Boys’ Team won their heat for speed.  Great work by both teams!

 

Pictures from the day are below the students’ names.
