Critter Keepers

Our 2nd quarter Behavior Reward was a visit from Critter's Keepers.  We looked at insects, reptiles, and amphibians.  The presenter pulled a few pranks on our students that made everyone scream and laugh.

Inquiry: Will the surface on the road affect the speed of a car?

We used the same car and had the same length ramp set at the same incline.  Three people started and stopped their stop watch to measure the speed the car descended down the ramp.  Each material had three trial runs.  So which material made the car descend the slowest and fastest?  Your choices:  carpet, bubble wrap, sandpaper, oil on aluminum foil, wind blowing again it, weight added to it, or just the car on the ramp.
