I was so impressed with what the children came up with yesterday during our motion lesson.

We first made a ramp as a class. Then we raced objects down the ramp. I had the idea to race different vegetables.

I wanted the children to brain storm and guess which would win and why. We discussed the texture, weight, size and shape of the vegetable. Then we added in marbles, balls, crayons and pompons. By the end of the day the children were racing TP rolls, water bottles, crayons…… During part of the lesson the children had to get a foam ball through a hole. They had to experiment with height of their ramp, blowing the ball and distance. On another table they were launching plastic bugs toward a target.


What’s next you ask? I am going to try balloon rockets and marshmallow launchers.
