Year 2 Science Investigation: Car Ramps

Students in Year 2 have been focusing on Physical Science. Their task was to investigate forces and the consideration of how pushes and pulls make things move. We used the following question as a focus point:

How far can we get our car to travel without pushing or pulling it?

Students worked in collaborative groups and predicted, observed and explained their findings after designing, building, testing and evaluating their car ramps.
