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.
About the Blogger
I started my teaching career in South Central Los Angeles teaching in modified to full bilingual 4th and 5th grade classes. Then I moved to WA State where I have taught mainly 6th through 8th grade. I have enjoyed the culture clash but notice that kids are the same everywhere :o)
My areas of interest are science and technology but I also love studying ancient cultures and learning about different peoples and cultures.
