Does anyone use the Ramps and Pathways Science unit? Our school wants to purchase blocks, marbles, balls, and pathways for each of the kinder rooms which is great! But I was wondering if there was any other materials out there that someone would be willing to share so we don't have to reinvent the wheel.

We don't use the Ramps & Pathways science unit but in our block area we have many different kinds of blocks - large cardboard ones, small cardboard, foam, and wood. There's also a variety of vehicles (which encourages the building of roads & ramps), people figures, plastic animals, and segments of "cove moulding" (from Home Depot http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...atalogId=10053) for building ramps.

I used this for our science fair topic last year and the kids loved it! I purchased a kit that went with the book for I think it was $85 which had all the ramps and balls you need and it was a lot easier than trying to find things myself. I had a small class last year so one was enough. The children created a report drawing and writing about the experiments to display at the science fair. It was great! This year we are doing a social studies fair, so I think I might incorporate the materials in to my block station.

I'm wondering if you could give more information about the book and the kit. What is the title and where did you get it and the kit?
