This booklet consists of three centers and their associated readings and assessments.
Center 1 Ramp Rolling/Gravity & Collision involves observing the effect of the
non-contact force of gravity and the contact force of collision on the
motion of a toy car when rolled down a ramp.
Center 2 Get Pushy examines the impact of a push on the toy car as it rolls down the ramp.
Center 3 Magnetic Fishing explores how magnetism can be both a contact and noncontact force. This Center also includes a Final Assessment that the teacher will use to check students understanding from all three centers.
