Origami Boat The origami boat is a fun craft for older grade school children to make for a number of themes including: Columbus Day, learning about Japan, Transportation, Oceans and Buoyancy. And for some Sunday School themes including Jonah and the Whale, Noah, Jesus Walks on Water or Jesus and the Fisherman themed lesson. Yes, the boat will really float, but as the paper gets saturated with water, it will sink and be ruined. This can actually start a neat discussion about what made the boat float to begin with and then what made it sink. Fold the paper (or the 1/2 sheet of newspaper) in half. Fold down each side to make triangles.

Public transport modes include city buses, trolleybuses, trams (or light rail) and passenger trains, rapid transit (metro/subways/undergrounds etc) and ferries. Public transport between cities is dominated by airlines, coaches, and intercity rail. High-speed rail networks are being developed in many parts of the world. Most public transport runs to a scheduled timetable with the most frequent services running to a headway (e.g.: "every 5 minutes" as opposed to being scheduled for any specific time of the day). Share taxis offer on-demand services in many parts of the world, and some services will wait until the vehicle is full before it starts.
