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

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
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.
