Year 2 Car Ramp Experiment
 
     
 

Year 2 have been using their toys to conduct

science experiments. 

 

They had to find out whether the steepness of a ramp affected how far the toy car would travel. 

 
         
 

We needed to work very hard to make sure that our test was fair. 

 

 

The children came up with lots of things that needed to be

kept the same in order for the investigation to be fair. 

 
         
 

They then had to use their measuring skills, which they have been practising in maths this week, to find out how far the car travelled each time they made the ramp steeper.

 

Their conclusion -

The steeper the ramp, the further the car travelled.
