- Slide different things down the ramps – ball, cars, blocks, soft toys. Do things roll, slide or stay put? Which things travel the furthest from the end of the ramp? Why do some things just stop at the bottom?
- What happens when you change the angle of the ramp? What happens when you make the ramp really steep?
- Place some things at the bottom of the ramp as a target. A small tower of blocks is fun.
- Use a variety of different ramps – we’ve used the slide, a baking tray, cardboard tubes, train tracks, books, cushions and probably more. What properties do the best ramps have? – rough or smooth? stiff or flexible?
As for the picture above … ramps were not enough and we were trying to make a jump for the cars!
