Friction investigation

Year 5 have ended their forces topic with an investigation into friction. They were asked to test various materials to see which one would be the most suitable material for a set of breaks for a tricycle. They had to decide which variables they would change and which ones would need to stay the same, in order for a fair test to be carried out. It was a fun filled lesson and the children now have an excellent knowledge of both water and air resistance and friction.
