PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great experiment that allows children to see how the shape of an object affects how far it will travel from the bottom of a ramp. They learn that the force of gravity is consistent, but friction is a counter force. Students practice making predictions, observations, and measurements, and then compare actual results to their predictions.

In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to prepare and conduct the observations
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- printable student prediction and data observation forms to use before and during the experiment
- science writing paper for student reflections after the activity

This experiment is one of nine that is included in my Force and Motion unit, which can be found here:
