Maths ship

In this photo we are drawing a ship with 1 metre rulers and following steps.
We had to draw a 4 metre line, a curved line that went from left to right, a triangle that was 1 metre on each side, another 4 meter line that was on the bottom of the triangle and then ourselves holding a 2 metre fishing line, with a fish on the bottom. We were doing this because we are learning about measurements, for example meters and kilometers.
