Here are all the materials they have:
1. A toy car
2. A ramp
3. Three wooden blocks
Students figured out that they could raise the ramp with the three blocks. Many students hypothesized that they car would go farther or faster by raising the ramp higher. But there would be only one way to figure out if their hypotheses were correct.
"A TEST, MRS. BRINZA!!! LET'S TEST IT!"
Students are collecting evidence to support their hypotheses using string to measure the distance the car travels on ramps of 1 block, 2 blocks, or 3 blocks high. Check back soon to see our results!
