Description:

This inquiry-based lesson for grades K-2 explores motion of objects rolling down an incline. Students record data as they roll different objects down a ramp whose height is variable. The lesson is intended to demonstrate the mechanical advantage of an inclined plane, and also to aid in concept formation of gravitational acceleration. This is part of a larger collection of lessons developed by ScienceNetLinks for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
