Friday 26th November 2010 – Maple Class Investigate Friction

Filed under: Science,Year 3-4 @ 4:18 pm

Yesterday, Maple class planned and carried out their own investigations linked to their Science topic of friction.  They worked in small groups and used baskets, weights and force meters to test whether the different surfaces affected the amount of force needed to pull the basket across the surface.  We discussed how we would keep the test fair and how much weight would be needed in the baskets so that it would move easily.  The children recorded their results into a table in their books – I was very impressed with the level of discussion amongst each group too!  We are going to look at these results in more detail net week and see if we can come up with any conclusions.
