Friction Game

This printable card set and graphic organizer style gameboard allows students to categorize examples as useful or non-useful after determining the amount of friction in each example. A second graphic organizer is provided for brainstorming further examples of friction. Consider using this game to encourage brainstorming for design of studentsu2019 own simple investigations. May also be used as an assessment.
