Third-graders create rafts

Posted: Updated:
COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -

Third-graders at Woodward Academy put on their thinking caps for a creative assignment at the pool on Friday.

The mission was for students to collect any and all materials to design a raft that would carry assistant principal Eric Mitchell from one end of the pool to the other.

Styrofoam, masking tape, cans, bottles and balloons were just some of the items used to build a variation of rafts.

Some carried the assistant principal across better than others.

Educators there say it's part of "out-of-the box'" curriculum Woodward strives for.

The third-graders in College Park divided into 10 teams for this fun hands-on learning project,

All the construction items for the floats had to come from students' homes.
