I made a ramp as an example of an incline plane. I learnt that the higher the ramp was the further the car went. I measured how far the car travelled when it came off the ramp.
I learnt that the further I pulled the spoon on the slingshot back  the further the load would go. If I didn't pull it back far enough the load wouldn't go far.
I learnt that if I pull the flag pole’s string up the flag will go down and when I pulled the string down the flag would go up.
