During Science this term, we are learning about forces. This week, we looked at friction and how it affects us in our daily lives. We made climbing frogs and changed a variety of different variables to see what types of surfaces created less friction or more friction. As a class, we came to the conclusion that rougher surfaces create greater friction and smoother surfaces create less friction between them. You'll be happy to know that many of our frogs were successful in climbing out of the pond!
