Car Printing

The Butterflies put cars in paint and pushed them over a ledge to see the marks that were left. 

The paper was placed at a gradient and children were able to make predictions about how far they would travel. 

The children watched in awe and wonder as the cars travelled across the paper and marvelled at the tracks they left. 

The children looked at the various wheels and talked about what marks they might make. 

Some cars made bigger marks than others as they had bigger wheels. 

The children were able to see the movements they made with the cars left marks on paper.
