Incline planes

At Herndon Elementary School the primary grade students are using engineer design skills to build ramps from Keva Planks in the STEM lab.  They are introduced to the design process, new vocabulary, and have fun all at the same time.  Our hope is that when they get to the science unit on simple machines they can recall this activity.  This will give them a head start on understanding an incline plane of which a ramp is an example.
