Friction Frogs


The Yr 4-5-6 recent science experiment was delving into “How friction works.” We used cut out paper  frogs which were attached with string through loops  from the underside. Students were at the end of the 2 pieces of string, holding each. We were trying to see if the string had enough friction to make the frog move along the string from one person to another as we pulled the string with each hand back and forth. It worked. The frog moved from one person to the other.
