Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Laser Cut the Wood
Use the provided SVG file. It consists of all the necessary pieces.
I used Inkscape to create this file and to print the model to the laser cutter.
Beware that the design in the SVG file is for material with a 3 mm thickness.
Step 2: Puzzle
Try to fit all the pieces together so you get your pirate ship. Some pieces may fit really tight, use the wood file where needed.
Step 3: Glue Together
Finally you can run some CA glue into the joints so that the ship is more solid
