Conduct structured investigations to answer questions about the relationship between friction and the motion of objects.
- Physical Science: Exploring Pushes and Pulls
The student will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of pushes, pulls, and friction on the motion of objects.
An object that is not moving will only move if it is pushed or pulled. Pushes and pulls can vary in strength and direction and can affect the motion of an object. Gravity is a pull that makes objects fall to the ground. Friction is produced when two objects come in contact with each other and can be reduced if needed.
