Ships & Boats

The Super Explorers want to show you the ships and boats of the world, from the smallest dinghy to the largest cruise ship: 

• Barques were used 5000 years ago in Ancient Egypt, but they looked a bit different than the ones we have today
• Vikings traveled in Longships that could sail forward and backward
• Harmony of the Seas, the biggest cruise ship, can carry 5400 passengers and 2300 crew
• In one minute, a fireboat can pump enough water 
to fill 1000 bathtubs
• Hovercrafts travel on a cushion 
of air over water, land or ice
• An aircraft carrier is like a floating airport.
