In this activity your child will be learning engineering and construction. They will learn theories in physics; gravity, velocity, inclined planes, and speed. If you are doing this with more than one child they will learn teamwork and social skills.
When I made the ramps I wanted the children to have as much flexibility and options to create as possible. Therefore, I used strong but flexible tape for the middle sections. I left enough space between the two pieces of cardboard so that the ramps would bend giving the children the opportunity to vary the inclined planes.
I used some boxes as tunnels that could still be used as ramps. I made some low boxes to wedge the ramps in so that they would stay up.
I included sealed boxes for the children to build the ramps on.
balance and hold the ramps in place.
I also left pieces of boxes (as shown in the picture above) to catch the items at the bottom of the ramps.
