Identity crisis? No, I'm a male nursery teacher!: Racing to understand place value in EYFS

MEASUREMENT understand place value in EYFS. But, for preschool, simply measuring the distance traveled. closest to the tube, furthest, etc.

great science experiment for force and motion and inquiry process

EDUC 325 - Physics - Forces & Motion - Newton's First Law - Lower Elementary - Science experiment for force and motion and inquiry process using a ramp, car, & egg in baggie

GIANT Magnet board fun -- toilet paper tubes, magnets, ping pong balls to make giant marble roll with an oil pan as the magnet board

GIANT Magnet board fun -- toilet paper tubes, magnets, ping pong balls to make giant marble roll with an oil pan as the magnet board. Inexpensive and clever idea!

Exploring Science in Pre-K with Ramps

Exploring Ramps-- simple idea for pre-k age. Do a more difficult adaption for elementary too and have groups going on simultaneously?

FORCES & MOVEMENT experiment - Race the cars several times, making sure to record which order the cars finish each time. Then find the average standings for each of the three tracks. After collecting the data, let students reflect on the effect of the tracks' textures on the outcomes of the races. Were their hypotheses correct? How did friction affect the cars' racing times?

Engineering with ramp making materials in preschool

we just used some spare planks of wood, which can be roads, ramps or slides. very popular, and frequently used

Make a ball maze out of paper towel rolls and watch them race back and forth.

cardboard tubes + box = hours of fun! We pieced together TP and paper towel tubes. Used marbles. The kiddo loved it and even still pulls it out to roll the marbles into a dump truck. He wont' let me toss any cardboard tubes now.

Balls and ramps

balls & ramps allows children to explore momentum

Friction-ramp

Make your own Friction Ramp

Physical Science - This activity is rolling a vehicle down a ramp on both a smooth and a rough surface. Children can learn about physical science by exploring motion, energy, and friction. Science standard: Using evidence, discuss ideas ab

Learn about conservation of energy with a skater dude! Build tracks, ramps and jumps for the skater and view the kinetic energy, potential energy and friction as he moves. You can also take the skater to different planets or even space!

Energy Skate Park Screenshot: explore PE, KE, conservation of energy, and friction.link to roller coaster?

Hit the skate park to explore the affect of friction on kinetic energy and potential energy. #science #activity
