Stopping Demo

Today we went out onto the road to watch a demonstration on how far a car continues to travel once the brakes have been applied. There were three different examples at three different speeds...20km, 50 km and 60km. It is interesting to see how long it actually takes a small car to come to a complete stop.
Hopefully your children with talk to you about this experience...many of us found it funny to see the plastic cut-out getting knocked over by the car. However back in the classroom we discussed whether this would be funny if these were real people crossing the road and how our families would all be feeling if it were us getting hit by a car.
