This activity is sure to be a class favorite! It addresses the measurement and mathematical practice common core math strands in both kindergarten and first grade.
While it is primarily a math activity, I actually use it in my listening center. My kindergarten students listen to a book on cars/wheels then this activity is the response. It really adds some fun to the listening center!
Students copy cards to build ramps of three different sizes. There are three options for a writing response so that you are able to differentiate based on your students' abilities.
Early finishers could be challenged to design and build a ramp that would send the car even farther!
