We have three 6th grade Science classes and two 8th grade Science classes blogging here from the Pacific Northwest in Chimacum, WA! Sixth graders are learning a bit about Mt Saint Helens, environmental science through fresh water ecology, and physical science this year. Eighth graders are learning about life science this year. Please join us as we learn Science by exploring our world.

the power of friction
without friction we would not stop something untile it crashes into something else. without friction the earth will be a gaint ball of ice. without friction ... well I`m pretty sure you get the point friction is pretty importrtant. friction is a force like gravity we lerned how friction works by slideing a wooden block across the surface of waxpaper, tabletop, papertowle, fine sandpaper, and corse sandpaper. thats in 6.1 in 6.2 we mesured friction on one surface and in 6.3 we made more friction by stacking one block on top another.
