My children, the sea captains

We're studying Christopher Columbus this week in history.  And air in science. 

So put these two together and what do you have?   


The Nina and the Santa Maria sailing from Spain to the New World.  Or you know, aluminum foil boats being blown from one side of the sink to the other.  We work with what we've got, people.



What happened to the Pinta, you ask?  Well the Pinta was a casualty of economic times.  Translation?  Aluminum foil does not grow on trees and mama is cheap frugal.
