Friction experiment

Date: 28th Sep 2018 @ 3:02pm

We have had a fantastic afternoon in Class 3 finding out what friction is. We did the 'wibbly wobbly jelly' experiment and we found out that the friction helped us move the jelly cubes from one bowl to another. However, Miss Henderson then added oil to our bowls and we found that it was much harder because the oil acted as a barrier between the two surfaces (chopsticks and the jelly).
