Just add gravity

The children have been building ramps. One day this week I put large cardboard tubes in the classroom to see how they would use them...I asked the simple question "how can I use these tubes?  I am a big fan of Jean Piaget and his thoughts on constructivism. He believed that knowledge is constructed and not given. Children build on prior knowledge to formulate new understandings of the world around them. I've added these two links if you would like to know more about constructivism and Jean Piaget.   http://www.thirteen.org/edonline/concept2class/constructivism/index_sub2.html
