A science experiment which investigates the relationship between friction and the properties of various materials.
Friction is a force. When an object slides against another object in a particular direction, friction acts upon the object to slow or stop it sliding.
Different materials can affect the strength of the friction force.
This Force, Motion, and Energy experiment allows students to investigate materials and their relationships with the force of friction.
Students follow the scientific method to conduct the Science, Investigation, & Reasoning experiment, then complete the science investigation worksheets provided.
