A few weeks ago, we checked in with third- and fifth-grade students at Christa McAuliffe School who were building some life-sized boats out of cardboard.
That was fun and all, but we know you really wanted to see the end result. That’s why we trekked up to Ashland (don’t tell our bosses we snuck out!) recently to see how they would fare in the water.
Both boats passed the test with flying colors, floating with ease while supporting a third-grader. Students Jack Brown and Zach Lund took the maiden voyages, each lasting about 20 minutes.
Bonnie Larochelle, a third-grade teacher at Christa McAuliffe, led the trip to her lake house where the whole third grade partied the day away.
All of the kids – and adults, for that matter – were really impressed with how well the boats worked.
Goes to show you can do anything if you set your mind to it, kids.
