Roll That Can

What to do:

  1. Provide a variety of different sized, clean, empty cans (soup, beans, coffee, etc.). Make sure there are no sharp edges.
  2. With the children, create several sizes of ramps—cookie sheets with one end on a book work fine.
  3. Have children roll the cans down the ramps to see how far each can goes.
  4. Change the length and angle of the ramp to see what happens.
