Product Description
In the 6th packet of the "Science Kids" series, students consider the question, "What affects the way an object rolls down a ramp?" This packet supports the Next Generation Science Standard K-PS2.

The “Science Kids” series of packets is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning.

In this Unit, children will use balls, cars and other objects on ramps to learn the following concepts:

*Some objects roll down ramps, while others slide.
*The height or texture of a ramp will change the distance and speed an object rolls.
*Changing the weight of an object will change the distance and speed it rolls down a ramp.
*An object will move around obstacles that are in its way as it rolls down a ramp

Investigations include:

*"Does it Roll or Slide?"
*"Does Height Make a Difference?"
*"Bumpy Ramps"
*"Heavy and Light"
*"Obstacles"

Printable "Prediction" and "What Really Happened?" sheets are included for many of these investigations.

Also included is a "Just for Fun" ramps art activity.

The final project in this packet is a "Design Your Own Ramp" activity with printable planning sheets and suggestions for ways that students can share their projects with their peers and others.
