How far will our models go?

| 1 Comment

Today we listened to the “Pushbike Song”. Part of the words are:

“Down up pedals, down up down,
Round round wheels, go round and round”

How could we make a model that travels the furthest?

Students worked together to create one model. We had a start line and marked how far the models went. There were lots of wonderings and discoveries!

“Do more wheels make it go further?” Brian

We are in the process of measuring how far each model went. Some did not stay in one piece!

  1. This looks like so much fun. I wonder if the weight of the vehicle makes a difference, if it is heavy or light? Or if you test it on another surface other than the carpet? Lots of exploring to do.
