HMS Chocolate

Topic: 1C Sorting and using materials

A French chocolatier launched a 3.5m chocolate and sugar boat in front of a crowd of hundreds of onlookers in the port of Concarneau. Chocolate creator Georges Larnicol, who owns a dozen shops across western France, won a bet by successfully building a seaworthy boat from chocolate.

In this activity children will decide which materials are suitable for making a boat. They will investigate materials and design a boat.
