We are having so much fun building ramps!! The kids love coming up with their own designs and testing out how they work with a ball.  We've talked about inclines and how a ramp has to have a high point and a low point.  We discussed gravity and how heavier items fall faster than a light item.  We tested some things out and the kids really enjoyed guessing what will hit the ground first.  The kids still enjoy talking about snow and all the fun activities they were able to do over the weekend!  This week we will continue talking about ramps and I will give them some more ramp challenges.
