Forces in Action!
Our Year 4 classes are exploring different forces including gravity, thrust, friction and drag as they undertake a number of hands on experiments as part of their Integrated Studies Unit - ‘May the Force be With You’.
During one recent experiment, 4R focused on the concept of friction. Students collected data as they rolled a toy car down a ramp with varying surfaces under controlled conditions. Students prepared a hypothesis and recorded data to make scientific conclusions.
