Item# LSP 2792-UK
Ages 6 - 8

Forces on Objects & Slopes and Surfaces

In these project-based lessons students meet Ron, a skateboarding armadillo who wants to make the new ramp safe for everyone. Through fun practical exploration, slopes and surfaces are brought to life. Students are introduced to the effects of friction and gradient on motion and distance and explore the concepts of guessing (predicting) and recording data. They also learn about measurement and using graphs to problem solve as they are challenged to engineer the ramp so that Ron goes far... but not too far!
