4Cit Studio Activity: The LUGE Zoom Challenge!

You have learned about force and motion this year. We know that certain objects and force can result in different kinds of motion. Today we are going to carry out an investigation to determine the relationship between the objects physical characteristics and its motion when a force is applied. Today is the Luge Zoom Challenge! A luge is a small one or two person sled that is often used in the Olympics. Today you will: Watch the video video to learn more about how the luge works. Design drawing a ramp and a luge that will travel the farthest distance. Build your ramp and luge out of any materials that you have around your house. Then find materials that you can put on your luge to role down the ramp. A marble or small ball would work, but lots of other household items would work. Then use blocks or any small items to measure how far the objects rolled. Take a picture photo of your ramp and luge and post to the assignment. Use pictures or words drawing to tell about it. Have fun!!

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

SKP2.a Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to compare and describe different types of motion. (While not explicit, the concept of gravity is incorporated into SKP2 when students are investigating the motion of objects in relation to the application of a force. - Reference to GPS SKP3) Plan and carry out an investigation to determine the relationship between an object’s physical attributes and its resulting motion (straight, circular, back and forth, fast and slow, and motionless) when a force is applied. (Examples could include toss, drop, push, and pull.) I can plan and carry out an investigation to determine the relationship between an object's physical attributes and its resulting motion (straight, circular, back and forth, fast and slow, and motionless) when a force is applied.
