As part of our study of ancient history we read several pages in The Usborne Book of Living Long Ago about ancient history. The book covers several different time periods, but we are focusing on the sections on ancient history for now. On page 75 of the book it gave directions for making a coracle. Coracles are ancient circular shaped boats from Wales.
All three of our coracles were seaworthy. Notice the little stick figure holding the paddle. Of course we had to watch a video of a real coracle in action.
This was a fun project and not too difficult to complete. And now my boys have some new tub toys!
