How Heavy, How Far

In this science instructional activity, students investigate how the length, width and mass of a toy car affects the distance it will go from a given height on a track. Students construct a cardboard track using the pattern and perform investigations about the height of the track and the mass of the toy car in relation to the distance it will travel. Students record data on the page.

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
