Compete in a slow race! Investigate how a toy car moves over different surfaces. Find the texture that creates the most friction and causes the toy car to travel the slowest down a ramp. This activity helps children learn flexibility and creative thinking skills.
|Add a Tech Twist||Optional: use a smart phone to film different race trials. Use the "slow-mo" option to slow down your video.|
|Hints for uses in your library||Use the words “more” and “less” to describe stacks of books. Ask children to point to the stack that has more. For more "Time to Try" math activity ideas, visit Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit website|
