In this video from Curious George, watch as three children build boats using everyday materials, including a pie tin, straws, a cup, and paper towel tubes. After they have each constructed a boat of their own design, the children make predictions as to whether it will float or sink. Then, they test their boats in a backyard wading pool and discover that only the boat made using a pie tin is water-worthy.
