Alka Rockets

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Students design a paper rocket propelled by Alka-Seltzer and water to demonstrate Newton's third law of motion. They, in pairs, determine the best combination of Alka-Seltzer and water to produce the maximum launch height and record...
Lesson Planet

Pop Rocket - Trash to Treasure

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
First off, Newton's laws of motion aren't often taught at 2nd grade, so this lesson may be more appropriate for upper elementary learners. It begins with a discussion and demonstration of the laws of motion, and then has individuals...
Lesson Planet

Blast Off!

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders investigate the third law of motion. For this third law of motion lesson, 4th graders explore the forces necessary for a rocket to launch. Students compare and contrast propellant and fuel. Numerous resources are provided.
Lesson Planet

Balloon Rockets

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Students, after reviewing and analyzing Newton's third law of motion, make balloon rockets and experiment with a variety of models. After the experiment, they chart the results and form conclusions. In addition, they compare/contrast...
Lesson Planet

Motion and Forces

For Teachers 9th
Ninth graders create PowerPoint presentations to present Newton's three laws of motion, and make and launch rockets.
Lesson Planet

Paper Rockets

For Teachers 3rd - 6th
Students design, construct, and fly paper rockets, and measure which rocket will travel the greatest distance. They construct the rocket out of paper, launch them by blowing air through a straw, and record the data in graph form.
Lesson Planet

Rocket Activity

For Teachers 4th - 8th
Students explore Newton's Second Law of Motion. In this rocket activity lesson plan, students experiment with Newton's Second Law of Motion as they use a slingshot device to force a car to move.
Lesson Planet

Do Some Research: Rockets

For Students 4th - 7th
After completing library or internet research about a question on the "Father of American Rocketry," students summarize their findings in a short report in the space provided. Students can also include a small drawing to illustrate what...
Lesson Planet

Action-Reaction! Rocket

For Teachers 5th - 7th
Learners construct a rocket from a balloon propelled along a guide string. They use this model to learn about Newton's three laws of motion, examining the effect of different forces on the motion of the rocket. They measure the distance...
Lesson Planet

Systems, UP, Up and Away!

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Students discuss rockets and how they work. Students research basic information about the Space Shuttle. Students work in collaborative groups creating "rockets" with empty film canisters. Students launch their "rockets" and record...
Lesson Planet

Antacid Tablet Race

For Teachers 5th - 12th
Students complete experiments to determine how rocket fuel is affected by surface area and temperature. They compare the reaction rates of antacid tablets. They discuss their results to complete the lesson.
Lesson Planet

Gross Motor Development

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders participate in a game reflecting the solar system, stars, and rockets. They simulate how space invaders move and hit stars and rockets. They discuss how scientists study the stars and planets.
Lesson Planet

International Manned Space Travel and Technologies

For Teachers 3rd - 4th
Students analyze elements of space travel. In this space travel instructional activity, students log on to Second Life and virtually explore rockets and other tools used in space travel. Students research manned space flights and...
Lesson Planet

Newton Gets Me Moving

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders experiment with Newton's three laws of motion.  In this motion lesson, 4th graders explore the three laws of motion and then work in small groups collaborating while experimenting with these laws. Numerous resources are...
Lesson Planet

The Hobby Shop: Rocket Module

For Students 6th - 8th
In this rocket worksheet, students open an Internet browser to learn about rocket modules. Students complete 21 essay questions using the information from the website.
Lesson Planet

Rockets!!

For Teachers 6th - 9th
Students launch a rocket.  In this laws of motion lesson, students discuss the forces of flight, how a plane flies and how a rocket gets off the ground.  Students watch a video about rocket launches, discuss Newton's Third Law of Motion...
Lesson Planet

Up, Up and Away

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders design and launch rockets.  In this rocket lesson, 4th graders observe the changes in outcome caused by size and fuel variables. Students navigate the NASA website to learn the parts of a rocket. Students load the canister...
Lesson Planet

Blast Off with Model Rockets

For Teachers 8th - 9th
