Science: Gravity and Toy Car Experiment

Third graders discover the effects upon gravity caused by mass and distance of the gravitational force between two objects. Using toy cars and a ramp, they add more weight to their cars and measure the distance they travel from the top of the ramp to the stopping point. Once they have experimented numerous times, 3rd graders compile their information into a bar graph.
