Product Description
This is a fun and simple experiment that allows children to see how friction works. They explore how different surfaces on a ramp affect how quickly an object will move down it. They practice making predictions, observations, and measurements, and then compare actual results to their predictions. Friction comes to life!

In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to prepare and conduct the observations
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- printable student prediction and data observation forms to use before and during the experiment
- science writing paper for student reflections after the activity

This experiment is one of nine that is included in my Force and Motion unit, which can be found here:
