Nobody wants to go for the world’s longest car ride. But what about a ride in the longest car? It’s a 100-foot long limousine with 26 wheels! This car is so long it has to bend in the middle, otherwise it couldn’t turn. It needs 2 people to drive it, and way, way more people to fill it. And those people should bring swimsuits, because this car has a pool in it!

*Wee ones: *Wheels are circles (looking at them from the side). Can you find 4 things in your room that can roll like a wheel?

*Little kids: *In that front stretch of 8 windows, if the passengers roll down every other one starting with the 1st, are more windows rolled down, or up, or is the number the same? Use your fingers if it helps! *Bonus: *If a normal car is 15 feet long, would a line of 10 normal cars be longer than the 100-foot long world record car?

*Big kids: *If you can bring 48 friends with you in a school bus or 96 friends with you in the world-record limo, which can carry more people, 2 full busses or 1 full limo? *Bonus: *If 1/3 of your 87 friends can fit in the car’s swimming pool at a time, how many friends can fit?

Answers:

*Wee ones: *Items might include toy balls, cups and plates (even if they can’t roll in a straight line), and of course, wheels on toy cars!

*Little kids: *The same number of windows. 4 are up, 4 are down. *Bonus: *Yes, because 10 x 15 = 150 feet of cars.

*Big kids: *The 2 school busses hold more, because the bus can hold 49 people, and 49 + 49 = 98 people, compared to a total of 97 in the limo. *Bonus: *29 people, because 87 / 3 = 29. You might notice that 87 = 90 – 3, so there is 1 less 3 in 87 than there is in 90.
