This #GoogleExpeditions lesson develops students' understanding of friction.
Abstract concepts, such as friction, can often be hard for students to understand. Take your students on a rock-climbing expedition to El Capitan, where they can see the importance of understanding friction and then perform a series of hands-on investigations in the classroom to develop understanding of the concept.
Google Expeditions are immersive 360 degree photo stories designed for use in the classroom. For more see: https://www.google.com/edu/expeditions/
