 Topic Mini-Research Real World Activity Congratulations! You've been chosen to help repair a broken race car! NASCAR needs your help! Matt Kenseth's race car, Number 17, lost one of it's wheels while driving yesterday. They've gotten it back into the garage safely but now they need your help to repair it. You must find an extra tire for the one that is missing and replace it.  You should draw a diagram of the race car and it's tires and show the mechanics how they should fix it!  Remember, there should be an equal number of tires on each side of the race car. Good luck! Steps to Complete Real World Activity 1. Go to the One-to-One Correspondence website and brush up on your counting skills. 2. Go to the NASCAR website to see what color Matt Kenseth's car is. 3. Next look at the race car worksheet the teacher has given you. Color the car the same color as Matt Kenseth's car and put his number on the side! 4. The teacher will have four wheels for each of you. You will draw dots on your wheels. One dot on one wheel, two dots on another wheel, three dots on another wheel, and four dots on the last wheel. 5. Take those four wheels needed for the race car to run properly and glue them onto the car in the correct places. The car has numbers where the wheels should go. Match the number of dots on the wheels to the number on each wheel on your race car. 6. This is when you are going to scan your project and put it on the internet.
