miniature carsThe sixth graders were challenged to create sails for a miniature soap box car that would allow the car to go the farthest when propelled by a fan.  The students worked in pairs to figure out how to create a sail that would "catch the wind".  The supplies used to create the sails were skewers, construction paper, tissue paper and card stock.
