Curious Kids Science Club: Make Your Car Fly With Forces & Friction

Amy Tucker, M.Ed.
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(104)
In this one-time class, students will use a hot wheels-type car and different materials to answer the question "What material has the least friction and makes the car go the farthest?"

Class experience

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.
