n this three-week curriculum, children explore the science of ramps and movement:
Week 1: Roll or Slide?
Discover how different objects move on ramps.
Week 2: Building More Ramps
Create ramps that are smooth, rough, steep, and fast.
Week 3: Ramps, Rides, and Roller Coasters
Invent games and rides that jump, swerve, and zigzag.
Roughly one to two hours (70–110 minutes) of science exploration is offered throughout a day. The day is broken into four segments:
Morning Circle (25–35 min.)
Read a story or watch a PEEP video (15–20 min.).
Then do a short, hands-on activity (10–15 min.).
Learning Centers (15–30 min.)
Give children time for free exploration at 4–5 different learning
Guided Activity (20–30 min.)
Guide children through a longer, hands-on activity.
Closing Circle (10–15 min.)
Get together and share the day’s discoveries.
