Have you ever wanted to know how to make your toy car go faster? You will learn about how friction works to slow things down so you can make a hot-wheels car go faster and farther down a ramp! The scientific method will be introduced to guide us through the experiment. The learners will ask the question "What material has the least friction and makes the car go the farthest?" Learners will gather information by discussing the definitions of forces and friction together. We will explore...
Students will define forces (a push or a pull) and friction (a force that slows things down). They will conduct a science experiment using the scientific method and create a bar graph of their results to share.
I have taught elementary science for 6 years and helped young children of all ages explore and love science. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Library Media Science. In 2007, I also obtained National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist.
None, other than sharing your results with your family.
