Why Lesson Planet?
Learners discuss rockets and how they work. Students research basic information about the Space Shuttle. Learners work in collaborative groups creating "rockets" with empty film canisters. Students launch their "rockets" and record results in their journal. Learners change launch constituents in lab and re-launch "rockets". Students draw a diagram of a rocket and explain how it works. Extension:Learners build model of the Space Shuttle.
