The groups perform a series of experiments with items of different textures, and draw conclusions about the cause/effect relationship between friction and solids, liquids, or gasses.

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
