Note from the author:
Students will play a game from BBC Network to learn about friction and its affect on movement.
CLICK HERE http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/science/physical_processes/friction/play/ to open the game. Click START to start the game. Your goal is to get to the truck before the guy on the motorcycle. Choose which path you think is the fastest. BE SURE TO CLICK THE OBJECTS THROWN AT YOU. You'll die otherwise!
