Investigation Friction in Year Five

Last week, Year Five learned how to measure ‘Force’ using a Forcemeter. This week, they showed how much more confident they now are at reading the different scales while investigating which surfaces have high friction and which have low friction. The children worked in pairs to complete their own investigations and discussed their results to come up with a conclusion. Some groups showed excellent investigative skills by going back to check their results, while other groups were able to successfully use their conclusions to suggest the best materials to use to prevent slipping.
