Hi Mr Powell (;

My Favourite part of today was making the Boats from Plasticine. I learnt that not all Plasticine sinks as long as you have a thin surface and thick sides,if you put dry ice in carbon-dioxide it creates smoke and unlike other gasses when carbon-dioxide freezes it does not turn into a liquid.The South Pole is colder than the North Pole and Polar Bears live in the North Pole because the South Pole is too cold for them penguins live in the south because it is a bit to warm for them in the north pole.

I liked the Polar Explorer workshop because we made boats out of plasticine. It was really hard because most of the boats kept sinking! Only one floated.

Strong and can get helicopters on the polar explorer . The polar explorer is very very heavy that even the worlds strongest man can't even lift it
