Activity sheet: Make a Lifeboat

Make a simple lifeboat using the template.

​Make your own simple lifeboat using the outline and a plastic washing-up liquid bottle.  Photocopy the image onto card then cut out and fold as directed, and use plasticine to make the boat self-righting, just like our lifeboats!  Make one just for fun or use with the self-righting lesson plan.
