Ramps and Rolling
This exploration is for toddlers and preschoolers!
Investigation simulates curiosity, and allows your preschooler to ask probing questions. As your preschooler investigates, they are demonstrating higher level thinking and creativity.
Allow your preschooler or toddler to use ribbon spools and objects around your home to investigate ramps.
Here are some conversation starters as your preschooler explores:
- Which ramps allows the rolling object to travel the fastest?
- Which ramp allows the rolling object to travel the furthest?
- What are the different textures of each ramp?
- What happens when we move the ramp higher and lower?
Allow your toddler to explore cause and effect. Practice with ramps along with rolling the spool back and forth.
