Kindergartners are looking for more ways to change the motion of a car. They've already changed the height of the ramp. Now they're keeping the ramp height the same and changing the weight of each car they test.

Using measurement skills, students determined how far the car went and compared it to the results from each test they did. Check out their work to the left...this chart shows that as the weight of the car increases, so does the distance it travels! The opposite can also be true. As the weight of the car decreases, the distance it travels becomes less.

I wonder what would happen if we increased the weight of the car to more than 10 weights! What do you think?
