small boats and basket boats


Prior Knowledge - what I already know
New Information - what I read in the text
Synthesis - my new understanding is
Dinghies are sometimes controlled by ores and motors.  small boats are easily sunk if too much weight is put on them. 
 Small boats easily splintered and water comes into them and they sink.
  





basket boats are made from bamboo.
A sticky resin from a special tree is put on the inside and outside to make the boat waterproof.
They are very safe and they don't sink.     
basket boats are very similar to small boats  basket boats are safer because they don't tip or sink.
