Build Your Own Land Vehicles by Rob Ives - OPTIONAL

Ives, Rob Build Your Own Land Vehicles, 31 pages.  NON-FICTION. Hungry Tomato, 2018. $26. Content: G.  

Eight different land vehicles with instructions are included in this book.  Each land vehicles comes with an explanation of what tools and supplies are needed to make it.  The instructions are 2-3 pages long with 6-10 steps that are illustrated.  The supplies needed for these creations were a little more accessible around the house, such as a clothes pin, whiffle golf ball, paper clips, mouse trap and markers to name a few.  

The instructions seem easy to follow and are geared toward kids.  There is a glossary at the end to explain terms such as acceleration, friction and gravity.  If you have a teacher with a makerspace station in their classroom these would be a big hit.
