Step 1: Thorough discussion (What are the major parts of a sailboat? What is the significance of the different parts? How does it hold meaning to the people or culture it represents?)
Step 2: Then have students break up into 6 groups of 5-8, for a collaboration/ brainstorming of their own designs for a sailboat, students do a Think-Pair-Share
Step 3: Groups will select parts of the boat they wish to create. Then each group will choose their own design for their particular part of the boat. Once agreed upon construction begins.
Step 4: Students begin working together with other groups to begin assembling all the parts to create one representing class boat.
Step 5: Students will evaluate their own artwork by the use of self and peer critique. Then hold a class-led discussion about what was learned from this project.
