Fun Friction Investigations
Now try our two fun friction investigations
Activity1: Slide a Shoe
Activity 2: Marble race
Now have ask the children to try out different wheels made of different materials, sizes and weights. How does this affect the speed of their vehicle? Make predictions, design a fair test and then investigate.
Now try running your vehicles on different surfaces.
- wooden floor
Which provides the most resistance?
Which surface would they choose to run their vehicle on?
Try the Car Constructor interactive on My Learning (see link at bottom of page) to make your own vehicle and see how well it performs on our Streetlife test track.
