I totally agree. What grade do you teach? I teach 7th, and I was trying to brainstorm ways in which I could adapt this activity with my students to introduce the physics of roller coasters.

Subject: [Channel-talkforce] Worksop 4
Just a little note to say how much I enjoyed Workshop 4. It was fun to watch such young children investigating the speed of balls rolling down ramps. I was amazed to see how they used their critical thinking skills to derive to the point that the material of the balls made a difference in the speed of the ball. This seems like an activity I could use with my students.
