Extend your child's science concept knowledge and math skills with these engaging STEM Learning Tips.
1. After your child has built the vehicle, try this investigation. Set up a starting line (place a piece of tape on an uncarpeted floor). At the starting line have your child gently push the car to make it go. Use a string or ruler to measure the distance it moved or place a piece of tape where it stopped. Then, have your child repeat the procedure two more times, with a stronger push each time. Talk about the distances the vehicle moved and guide your child to realize that a force (the push) made the car move and the greater the push, the further the car moved.
2. Repeat the investigation but this time, have your child push the car on two different floor surfaces (tile, wood, driveway, sidewalk). Have your child move a hand over the surfaces and describe how each feels to the touch (smooth, bumpy, hard, soft). Talk about the distances the vehicle moved on each surface and guide your child to realize that the surface affects the distance the car moved - the smoother the surface, the greater the distance. You can identify the force between the surface and the wheels of the vehicle as friction.
