Children have a natural inclination to explore and test. They love all things in motion, especially balls!
The Wooden Ball Run Board Set were developed to engage children in play that causes them to think about speed, momentum and gravity. They may not use those terms, but we know these concepts will drive their interest! Perfect for supporting physical science and your STEAM curriculum! This set includes ten, 5cm wooden balls and two runs. Each run has a different design affecting the ball differently adding a compare and contrast element to the play.
The runs each measure 120cm long x 29cm wide x 2.5cm thick and come with built in holes to hold extra balls. The boards are made of birch plywood that is hard-wearing and coated for an easy-clean surface. The balls included are hardwood and also very durable. You can add other balls to the run for added effects and exploration of STEM concepts. For example, experimenting with ping pong balls, golf balls, marbles, or any other roll-able item adds to discovery of momentum, speed, mass, etc in action.

- Wooden Ball Run Boards, set of 2
