Transform your students into scientific sleuths with a simulated amusement park mystery. Students use the discoveries of Galileo, Newton, and more to solve the perplexing problems of Roller Coaster World’s rides. Science journals help students strengthen their writing skills while documenting the results of five Design Tests. Finding contextual clues, forming hypotheses, performing experiments, and making conclusions are all part of the fun of figuring out the park’s puzzling problems. Multiple unit extension ideas are offered that utilize communication, problem-solving, and drama skills. Flexible timing depending on the use of extension activities. Grades 4–8. Interact.
