I see...

I think....

I wonder...
1 sheet newspaper
1 meter masking tape
1 marble
meter stick
1. How did working in a group make this activity easier to accomplish than working alone?

2. How did working in a group make this activity harder to accomplish than working alone?
1. Using only the newspaper and masking tape, build a ramp that:

a. Is at least 25 cm. in height.
b. Will carry marble the entire length of the ramp without being touched after it is first released.
c. Will cause the marble to change direction at least once.
d. Will stop the marble at the end of the ramp.

2. Do not use the scissors or meter stick as part of the ramp.

3. You will not receive extra paper or tape, once you use it up, it's gone!
You have 15 minutes!
