Force- Motion- Friction

In Science this week we have been learning about force, motion and friction.

On Wednesday we did an experiment with Beanbags to see what would happen if we applied different amounts of force to them. We found out that if you apply a lot of force- your beanbag might hit the roof of your classroom!

Today we talked about Friction and how it affects motion. We did an experiment with Hot Wheels Cars and drove them on different kinds of floors (tile, bootroom mat, and brown mat). The students had to predict which flooring produced the most friction and then they got to test their predictions out.

A great way to spend a Friday afternoon!
