Sid the Science Kid

Slide to the Side!

Sid is trying out his new dance called "The Sid Slide To The Side!" On his room's hardwood floor, he boogies to the left, jumps to the right and then tries to slide to the side. But in his new sneakers, he can't slide...he just squeaks to a stop! Sid and his friends investigate how different materials and surfaces can create friction, causing something to slow down.
