Students investigate how friction effects the movement of a block across surface areas. In this friction lesson, students experiment with five different surfaces to determine how each effects the movement of a block across them. They experiment with a smooth surface, wax paper, a paper towel, course and find sand paper. They predict and record the results on a graphing worksheet.
