We will be looking at Coopers. The goal for today is to build a barrel to hold and safely transport the most weight for a distance of 20 feet. You may ask what is a Cooper? A cooper is someone who makes casks, or barrels.
Here is slideshow about Coopers in Colonial Williamsburg, and check out this website about being a cooper. We will be doing Cornell Notes on this website and have a short quiz next week. Here is a cool game to try.
Below is a short video about how barrels are made.
