Learning about friction

How will different surfaces affect how quickly the car will move down the ramp?

As part of our Mighty Metals topic, we are learning about different forces. So far, we have discussed push, pull, gravity and air resistance. Today, we thought about how friction could slow things down.

We tested a car on four different surfaces to see which surface created the most friction and slowed the car down.

Which one do you think created the most friction?
