Year 3 Experiments with Cars to Find Out About Friction

Year 3 carried out an investigation to find out which surface a car would travel furthest on. P1000565
P1000557
They worked in groups to measure carefully and record their results. In class they used their results to explain what they found.
The car travelled the furthest distance on the tiles and the parquet, and the least distance on the artificial grass.P1000559
 We discovered a force called friction was at work, and had a lot of fun doing it!
