A paddle steamer, or paddle wheeler, is a type of boat that is driven forward by a large wheel. Usually the wheel is at the back of the paddle steamer (stern-wheeler), but there can also be a wheel on either side (side-wheeler).
Paddle steamers are usually found on still, calm water like rivers. The paddle wheel can be driven by either a steam engine or a more modern electric or diesel engine.
Paint is a liquid you can buy that you can use to change the colour of something. Paint goes on when it is wet, so you need to wait for it to dry. Some paints come in small, dry blocks and you need to wet them with water to be able to use them. You use a paintbrush to paint with.
