We were in the mood to be ship builder's today. We had a few challenges to overcome first.
They were to build a crow's nest that would let 3 people lookout. Next we had to construct a raft with a ' walk the plank' platform. The platform needed to be 15cm long. Some of us found out that this was longer than our raft!
We tested lots of construction kits and in our team talk at the end of the day, we decided that Lego and construction rods worked well.
It was great fun as we especially liked balancing counting people all over the mast of our ships.
