FRICTION A Grab and Go Lesson! To see a video of this lesson please visit: Alternatively, you can download a copy of the sample video from: 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.

Drag forces and friction - complete lesson (KS3)

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.

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.

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

P1 1.3 Drag Forces and Friction

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. Learning Outcomes: 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. Many thanks

Friction and drag

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.

Friction - observed lesson (outstanding)

Friction complete lesson, originally aimed at KS3 but could also be used at the top end of KS2. Students work in a booklet. Starts with a multiple choice quiz, scores to determine which activity they then complete. Lower scores - dragging tub over different surfaces, higher scores - gather data on different shoes on the same surface to explain what they already know about friction. Focus on practical/investigation work and differentiation. Includes an extra fun practical on friction and lubricants that all students love and provides some competition. This lesson was observed and the observer asked to stay longer because they wanted to take part themselves! Lesson plan, student booklet and powerpoint included. Literacy task included through an exit pass.
