Wibble Wobble!

Science week was celebrated in slippery style in Year 5 today!

As part as an experiment to test the effects of friction the children had to first lift out individual pieces of jelly from a bowl using straws only! They timed themselves and recorded their results. Oil was then added to each bowl and the children had to predict what might happen to the time. Would there be more friction or less friction when the oil is added to the jelly? What do you think?

Have a look at our photos and results…
