Ramps, water and cars

Investigative play.

The children have investigated this a few times throughout the year but today they decided to make it bigger.

They worked together using several resources to allow the slope to go very high.

Then they used water to make different sized cars go faster. They have two more pieces of guttering to add on so watch this spaceā€¦

Questions we thought about: Does a big car go fastest than a small car and why? Why does water help? Why have you designed the slope like this? How long does it take? Does it make a difference going backwards?
