Your students will love this hands-on activity from Learning With the Lays! This force lab demonstrates how force affects motion using ramps with different heights. Students will practice measuring skills by measuring the distance the jeep rolls in centimeters. This lab uses the scientific method and helps students create a question, state a hypothesis, perform an experiment, record results, and write a conclusion. The materials are easy to find and store in your classroom.
This activity is also in Fun With Force and Motion available in my store. Fun With Force and Motion is a compilation of Fun With Force, Fun With Motion, Fun With Friction, and Fun With Inertia. It also uses the picture book, Sheep In a Jeep, to demonstrate scientific concepts. Best of all, it is 4 labs for the price of 3!
