Product Description
This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Science standards* K-PS2-1 and K-PS2-2.

Students will “[p]lan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.”

Students will “[a]nalyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.”

This 35-page lesson is all about big ramps, small ramps, gravity, and force. Build a model roller coaster ramp using a pool noodle, a marble, and a few other recycled materials. Explore a smaller ramp by building your very own pinball machine out of a shoe box! This lesson is extremely hands-on and it gently introduces students to intriguing, yet difficult to understand physical science concepts of force and gravity.
