Gravity, Rolling & Motion-Great for K!
Marbles, Tracks & Ramps explores Gravity, Forces and Motion. We begin with demonstrations of each of these concepts (usually while sitting on the rug), and then we move the kids into 8 teams (pre-selected by the teacher) to build actual working Ramp Systems using Blocks & Marbles.
Parameters and guidelines for building the ramps are provided, but there is a lot of room for creativity and imagination during this part of the program.
We end up back on the rug for a review of what we've seen and a look at "The Plinka-Plunk Machine" which demonstrates gravity, forces and motion in a very fun way to wrap up the program.
