Our next exploration into force was to investigate friction. To get the students thinking about friction we played ‘tug of war’ all in the name of science! We had to observe the pull forces and the movement of the rope with the forces. Next we put on gloves to see what difference it made to the pull forces. When we added detergent to the gloves there was less friction between the rope and our hands. It was so hard to hold the rope and pull!
