Other Materials:

A piece of cardboard; books or boxes for stacking; toy cars, marbles, or other objects that roll


Help your camper set up a simple ramp using a piece of cardboard and a few books or boxes. You may want to fold up the edges of the cardboard to create railings and make the ramp stiffer.


Pair up toy cars, marbles, balls of Play Doh, or anything else that rolls for a race down a ramp. Which car is the fastest? Is a ball of Play Doh faster or slower than a regular ball or marble? What’s the very fastest thing you have? And what happens if you change how steep the ramp is?
