► ASSEMBLY - speak out, stay safe
If you did not watch this on Friday I recommend that you watch it today...
We know, from looking at pictures of the Earth that there is more water than land.
The land on Earth is divided into 7 continents and most of Earth's water is in the 5 major oceans.
Let's learn their names.
ACTIVITY 1 - RESEARCH
Can you research - maybe look on Google Maps/Earth - and complete a table with at least 3 countries of the World that have a coast with each ocean?
In your exercise book create a table like this to record your findings:
Challenge: Can you find two countries that have a coast with more than one of the oceans?
Can you find a country that has a coast with 3 of the oceans?
You will need:
What to investigate:
Ships carry cargo across the seas and oceans. The cargo might be goods to sell in other countries, food or people.
When ships are loaded with cargo do they put it all in the front, or the back or somewhere else? They certainly don't want ships to roll over when hit by a wave in rough seas.
You are going to see how much money a paper boat can carry before it capsizes....how good are you at loading the ship?
What to do
2. Take the paper boat and float it in enough water so that it will not touch the bottom, even when weighted down.
3. Add the first coin - think carefully where to place it.
4. Keep slowly adding coins 1 by 1 - thinking carefully each time where to place them.
5. How much money can your boat hold before it capsizes?
6. Repeat with another boat - use anything you have learned to try and improve your result.
