In this lesson children learn the cause and effect from pushing or changing the direction of an item that will cause speed to an object or make it stop and stay still. Some investigating went into this as different children tried. In trying the spool, a child put it the way it was standing in front of the ramp, 'It won't roll." How do you think it might roll? What can you do?""Let's investigate."
This is difficult for the younger children, but soon the older 4's got the tape roll, the spool, and the tree cookie to roll, but they explained the square block "is not round". Children started to try different objects around the classroom, and I still would like to make a graph with them. We continued this outside with water ramps and balls.
