Fly Me to the Moon!
In this Moon travel activity, students construct a simple rocket trajectory called the Hohmann Transfer orbit using a compass, string, paper and a pencil. Students solve 2 problems which include finding the number of hours it takes to travel to the Moon and determining the amount of fuel needed when a speed change occurs during travel.

Race to the Moon with a Recycool Rocket
Turn those old water bottles, cans, newspapers, and cardboard boxes into cool new toys. Working in teams, children design and build rockets, robots, or animals out of a variety used materials. Consider asking the class to bring in reusable items from home to further engage them in developing environmentally friendly habits.

Launches for the Stars
Students are introduced to rockets and the space shuttle program. After viewing a 1960s show, they examine the role and history of NASA and how it evolved into having a space shuttle program. In groups, they create their own model rocket and see if it launches.

Newton Rocket Car
Learners observe a demonstration of Newton's third law of motion using a small wooden car. They discuss Newton's third law of motion and what happens to motion if the mass or acceleration is increased, construct their car, and record and analyze data after launching the car and observing the results.
