Tall ship

Here you will find everything your students need to create their own replica tall ship.

In the side menu you will find the instructions and templates, some interesting facts about tall ships and the First Fleet (written for students) and extra lesson ideas to support this activity.

You will need to source some specific materials for this activity. The body of the ship should be made of stiff material such as shade cloth while the masts will be held in place by a thick foam. You may be able to find shade cloth offcuts at local hardware or gardening outlets and foam offcuts at furniture manufacturers or craft stores. These ships are designed to be decorative pieces and may not float if placed in water.

Teacher / supervisor safety note: The craft activities may require the use of cutting utensils and glue guns. Please use your discretion when allowing students to use any equipment required to produce these items. Adult supervision is recommended at all times.
