An experiment that explores friction with a toy car and different surfaces!
Write-up is based on popular friction experiment using cars and a ramp with different surfaces. Using the NC Essential Standards 5.P.1.1 and 5.P.1.4, students will use Hotwheels cars to investigate friction and mass. Includes the scientific method steps and a chart to record data.
5th - 6th
This video can be shared online for students to conduct their own safe, engaging, independent science investigation at home. The video contains a materials list, step-by-step instructions, and questions for reflection.This is part of a set of 5 science investigations students can complete at home:1.
3rd - 4th
With this bundle, your students will learn about the scientific method as they experiment with paper airplanes, toy cars and boats. Use the scientific method to learn about buoyancy, capacity, density, lift, drag, thrust, air pressure, force, motion, friction, Archimedes Principle, and Bernoulli's
It’s another fabulous STEM challenge using Newton’s Laws of Motion! Students will love this egg car challenge and the experimenting with their egg cars and ramps!Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!STEM Challenge Bundle featuring Newton’s Laws of MotionSTEM Challenges 6 Pack B
Discover how friction affects speed. This lab is a great introduction to the concept of friction that can be conducted in 30 minutes. Easy to adjust for multiple grade levels. This lab uses simple supplies that can be modified. A perfect activity for providing hands-on before vocabulary and conce
This recording sheet is to be used to record findings from an experiment during which children drive toy cars on various surfaces to test the how friction affects speed.
PreK - 1st
This is an experiment for students dealing with friction, force, and motion. It will take students through each step of the scientific method. The students will be using a binder and matchbox car to discover how friction effects how far a car will go. They will make a car go down a binder, measure,
Teaching friction?Use this handy, easy to fit in interactive notebooks handout that takes the students through the entire scientific method. They will predict which surface has the least amount of friction, set up the experiment on four surfaces, collect data, and form conclusions.Printer friendly!
This fourth grade Virginia SOL (4.1, 4.2) aligned experiment has students exploring how friction effects cars traveling down different surfaces. In my directions, I have given suggested surfaces to use, which have worked great for me, but the surface section of the data table is left blank if you w

Using a toy car, some plastic bendable track, text books, sandpaper, foil, or another item to create friction, ruler, and stop watch, students will time, measure, and record information of each run. After the experiment, students will make inferences on how the special items, height of track, or len

Want students to practice planning an experiment on forces? (TEK 5.6D) This bundle is JUST for that! I used these when helping my students practice designing an experiment. The best part was that we practically used the same materials (toy car and ramps) but just changed the variable. It really help
This includes two experiments with friction. One experiment requires the students to be part of the experiment. The other experiment involves hot wheel cars. You will also receive the student chart to record their findings and a powerpoint that helps demonstrate friction on different surfaces.
This worksheet features great essential questions, hypothesis-builders, data organizers, and post-experiment reflection questions to help students think through the data they gathered during the experiment to determine what it means. A list of the materials you'll need to conduct the experiment, al
In this Science experiment, students will be testing how much the height of a ramp and the weight of a toy car effect the distance the car travels. Students should be given some time to experiment with their ramp and car by increasing or decreasing the ramp height and adding weights to the car (wei
Students will experiment with four different materials to determine which type of material will create the least amount of friction for a toy car when it is going down a ramp.
This lab is designed for students to test which materials cause the most friction. Students can be given a variety of materials like sand paper, bubble wrap, tin foil, white boards, etc. This document gives students the basic format of the scientific process, but students must design their own expe
