Transport challenge

 

Use a toy car and experiment how to make the car travel a further distance. Discuss forces, motion and friction with the children and use a method of measuring the distance travelled. The children can record the measurements. You could even change the height of the run up, propel the vehicle, change the material of the road or compare different vehicles. Discuss ways of making this a fair test.
