A Tall Ship and a Star to Steer Her By

Students create a water transportation device powered by wind. In this wind power activity, students research transportation concepts after reading the poem "Sea Fever" by John Masefield. Students design the fastest sailboat they can manage and test their product. The wrap-up includes racing the sailboats and reading the poem "Intelligent Car" for comparison to the earlier poem.
