Let’s hope the children don’t get rubbed up the wrong way as they create some friction! Testing their own sports shoe they investigate on which surface their shoe will perform best before drawing conclusions from their results. Additional ICT resources!!
Suitable for Y4 pupils.

A full, differentiated lesson on the topic of drag forces and friction. The lesson is based on the activate 1 SOW and so is pitched to a year 7 group. The lesson includes a think pair and share, DART activity, simple practical activity (requiring different surfaces and a newtonmeters), differentiated question grid challenge and a reflective plenary. All answers are incorporated into the slides via animation and timers are included to promote pace.
This is the third lesson in the Forces topic of Activate 1, directed at a mixed ability Yr 7 Science class.
The presentation includes a challenge question, support and extension tasks on all relevant slides. collaborative learning opportunities.
A worksheet on interaction pairs, where students have to decide the pairs acting on an object - includes a worked example, scaffolded questions and challenging section to stretch higher ability students.
Identify when drag forces and friction occur
Describe the effects of drag forces and friction
Evaluate the forces of friction and drag on object and give reasons to change the forces acting.
Please rate and comment on what you find useful so I can alter my lessons in future.
This handout starts bu explaining what friction is . By giving examples it explains when it is useful or not. Then it finishes with some questions. Teachers can use it after explaining what friction is as a revision aid. It is intended mainly for average ability students

This is a complete lesson on the topic of Friction. It includes a fully editable lesson plan, PowerPoint, Differentiated activities (at the end of the PowerPoint) and a Pupil Peer Assessment sheet on an activity relating to friction.
The PowerPoint includes a bell task linking back to forces and a conveyor belt activity on the topic of forces too. Pupils are taught the basic principles of friction and then are given the task of creating a leaflet on the topic. There is a level ladder included in this pack based on Skill 1: Finding Information.
An engaging lesson from the Forces topic on Friction. The resources include a detailed PowerPoint with instructions on the practical task to be carried out. Furthermore extension work is provided for the more able.

KS3 lesson on friction. Differentiated throughout and combined with the practical dragging blocks over different surfaces.
Describe what friction is and how it occurs
Identify uses for friction
Explain why friction can be useful or a problem
Students complete a practical activity investigating friction using different shoes (different treads). This lesson touches on other drag forces as well. Used as part of Activate 1 SOW.
Reviews are much appreciated, I will gladly edit my work if there are any errors.
A lesson introducing the concept of friction to KS3.
Introduces friction and explains how it occurs, before looking at examples and applications.
A practical is used to investigate how the roughness of a surface effects friction.
Questions are included as part of the PowerPoint to reinforce learning and check understanding.
This is the second in our Friction series and contains 3 different practicals on the different types of friction.
Included in this pack is:
Clear Aims & Objectives
Three Fun Practical Investigations
