Fascinating Friction!

This week, Years 3 and 4 started learning about how forces act on objects. We conducted an investigation of friction on different surfaces, using a toy car and a variety of different materials. We made predictions on what surface would cause the most friction for the toy car and recorded our results in a table. We were able to explain our findings and talk about why different surfaces create different amounts of friction. Next week we will be learning about magnets.
