Ball Roll

First i made a ramp( i went to the garage to get cardboard and seen the sled right there and thought prefect ! I would also use my slide if i would of thought of it.First they predict which ball would be faster . Winner is the softball . The softball won more then any other ball.

They actual really love the races . Plus it was interest to see how they predict small ball or big balls to win.
