Steep, Steeper, and Steepest

Fifth graders discuss ways to move large rocks. They relate this to building a rock garden, and the ways people might load boulders into a truck. Students discuss the use of a ramp vs. lifting the boulder straight up onto the bed of the truck. They perform an experiment with a rock, paper clip and rubber band to illustrate the force involved.
