A science experiment which investigates rolling friction and the properties of various materials and shapes.
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 and shapes can affect the strength of the friction force.
This Physical Sciences experiment allows students to investigate materials, shapes, and their relationships with the force of rolling friction.
Students follow the scientific method to conduct the classroom experiment, then complete the science investigation worksheets provided.
