Product Description
• The race car project is a fun way to teach students about time, distance, and speed. It can also help them understand traction.
• It will take roughly 3 to 4 forty minute class periods. This can be shortened if the students build their cars at home.
• In building the cars, it is important that students only use the materials listed for this project. This assures that everyone has an equal advantage.
• I provide cardboard, soda straws, craft sticks, rubber bands, and hot glue gun. Students must get their own axles and wheels or make them using sticks and cardboard wheels.
• The craft sticks are reinforcement so the cardboard does not buckle under the strain of winding up the rubber band.
• Give students adequate time to test their cars and make modifications.
• Lack of traction, where wheels spin but the car does not go forward, is a common problem that must be solved.
• The students may customize and decorate their cars any way they like.
• Complete details are included.
