A New look at "Ramps and Rollers"
We've created a high interest alternative to "Ramps and Rollers". Each team received a box with four Hot Wheels cars, a scale, a metric ruler, two pieces of track, and a meter stick. Teams will ask a question, generate a hypothesis, create a materials list and list the procedures for the experiment. The most popular hypotheses have included: The angle of the track will affect the distance a car travels, The weight of the car will effect the distance the car travels, and the texture of the wheels will determine the distance the car travels. Great enthusiasm from my third and fourth graders.
