Creativity and Movement: Popsicle Stick Sailboats

We have this basin that I have been wanting to utilize.  Did you know that children and water play go hand in hand?  Popsicle sticks, glue, markers and cardboard from random boxes.  

We explored:
- how large or small the sail should be
- how long the boats can be submerged before the school glue gives out
- what we can do to cause the boat to move.

The whole process was a three day project which can be difficult for preschoolers. Also the patience it takes to glue the popsicle sticks just so.  Day 1 we glued the raft portion of the boat.  Day 2 we design the sail and attached it to the raft.  Day 3 was sail day.
