As a mom, I have played with Hot Wheels throughout my kid's elementary years. As a teacher, I have taught this unit of study to fourth grade students. I have taught this class online for several years.

Straight tracks Two or more vehicles Stacked books or raised platforms of various heights (such as a coffee table, a desk, a bookcase, countertop, or a kitchen table) Empty plastic bottle, empty yogurt container, toys etc. to knock down
