This week we have been learning more about Friction and Forces. We carried out an investigation to see if objects move differently on different surfaces. We used a jam jar lid and flicked it across different surfaces and measured how far the lid went. It was difficult to make sure we used the same force to flick the lid each time, but to be great scientists we need to make sure our investigations are fair tests!
