1 Multiple Surface Blocks Forces such as friction can slow down moving objects with these multiple surface blocks. 10 surface blocks, 5 different surfaces, 2 each of the following surfaces; sandpaper, carpet, foam, rubber and smooth wood. These blocks have the added advantage that you can rest weights on the tops of the blocks. Size L10 x W7 x D28cm.

2 Friction Footprints A set of 5 wooden footprints covered in 5 different materials, set of 100g - 500g weights and a set of Newton meters. Designed with KS2 in mind to plan, conduct and report a fair test. Links into scientifi c enquiry and forces and motion. Full teacher notes included, together with fair testing sheet, bar chart templates and report sheet templates.

3 Friction Catapult With this creative way of testing friction, children can investigate whether the type of material or the amount of force generated will affect the distance that the disc travels when launched from the catapult. With 5 different surfaces to investigate including sandpaper, wood, carpet, foam and rubber. Kit includes a calibrated launching station and 30 discs (6 of each surface).Thank You to Simon Smith for this Idea!!

4 Same Size Ball Pack A boxed set of 5 balls all the same size but very different in other ways. The balls have different masses, structure and surfaces. 2 are hollow, 2 are hard and all will bounce and roll differently. The supplied notes provide imaginative ideas to get you started. Contents may vary.
