Cardboard boat – level 2
Do you think you could build a boat completely from cardboard? Maybe you say, ”no”, but two men from England say, “of course you can!”
Over ten days, they turned 300 old boxes into a boat. They even made some life jackets and put a small outboard on the back. They made everything else from waste packaging, including the flag, which they made from bubble wrap.
They put the boat into the River Thames and all went to plan.
Difficult words: cardboard (the strong paper from which boxes are made), outboard (an outboard motor), waste packaging (material which is used as protection for things – bubble wrap, cardboard etc.).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
