Forces

Planning our investigations into air resistance.  We experimented with paper spinners and then worked with our groups to decide on what we could change about them.  We are now going to choose one of the variables to change and investigate what happens.
Is there a relationship between the mass and weight of an object?  We used weighing scales and force meters to record our results and then carried out some pattern seeking to answer this question.
We investigated forces by carrying out some hands on activities.  We experimented with moving jelly cubes using chopsticks.  We then had to try it with oil added to the dish.  This sparked a discussion about how friction was a force that could be very helpful in our everyday lives.
