And They’re Off...Who Will Win?

Take a piece of cardboard or hard, flat surface and create several racing stripes using duct tape. Use books to prop up the track and create different levels of incline. Start the car at the top of the ramp and let it go! Have your child measure how far it went with a measuring tape or her hands or feet. She can repeat the activity with different cars and different levels of slope and play over and over again!
