2.4 阻力與摩擦力 Resistance and Friction

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students learn the concept of friction and the difference between helpful and unhelpful friction.

  • Students will integrate and exhibit learning by creating a car and testing it on different surfaces to investigate how friction affects movement.

在這一課中,學生們學習摩擦力的概念以及區分有用的和無用的摩擦力。

學生們將在不同的表面上使用SAM太空車創造一個環境來研究摩擦是如何影響運動的。

    The followings are provided with this lesson kit:   

    • 45/90 minutes Resistance and Friction - Teacher Lesson Plan with notes (script) on lesson PowerPoint
    • Resistance and Friction -  Teaching PowerPoint
    • Resistance and Friction - Student Workbook (worksheet)
