Product Description
This is the first in a 3 part lab series dealing with Friction, but it can be used as a standalone activity. Students will be using spring scales to measure the force of friction created when dragging wooden blocks across different surfaces.

From the PowerPoint, students will also be guided through the steps of the scientific method (another great review) as they move from questions, to creating a hypothesis, to copying a procedure, collecting data, drawing a graph, and finally writing a well thought out conclusion.

Doing this activity makes it easy to incorporate a writing activity into your science lesson.

The supplies used in this lab are the same ones as in the following labs in this series.

The lesson plan with detailed instructions and grading rubric can be found here:
