Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Rockets

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: Curated OER

#### May the Force Be With You: Thrust

Force the plane through the air. The lesson introduces the force on an airplane that makes it go forward. Pupils learn how Newton's laws of motion apply to flight in the eighth segment of a 22-part unit on flight.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Action-Reaction! Rocket

Students 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: Curated OER

#### Altitude of A Rocket

The first two slides set up the conditions for this "experiment on paper". A fun activity where students chose which of the rockets will fly higher in the situations given. Each slide is followed by an answer page and this presentation...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Systems, UP, Up and Away!

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: Curated OER

#### Antacid Tablet Race

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: Curated OER

#### Newton Gets Me Moving

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: Curated OER

#### Blast Off!

Fourth graders investigate the third law of motion. In 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: Curated OER

#### Rockets!!

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: Curated OER

#### Up, Up and Away

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: Curated OER

#### Blast Off with Model Rockets

Students investigate science and math by building a rocket. In this geometry lesson, students build a rocket using paper towel tubes while investigating questions about launching a rocket. They discuss balance and unique structure as...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Blast Off!

Students build their own rockets. In this rocket lesson, students create the highest flying rocket they can powered by effervescent antacid tablets and water in film canisters. They listen to the story How to Build a Rocket by Hazel...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring the Ares 1-X Launch-Downrange Distance

In this Ares 1-X launch learning exercise, students read about the path of this rocket's launch and solve 2 problems. Students find the number of seconds it took the rocket to fall from a given altitude and they determine how far from...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Rockets

Students create rockets to test stability. In this rocketry lesson, students discover how rockets fly through air as they follow the procedures included in this activity.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Payload Rocket

Learners continue their examination of how to make a human presence in space. Using Newton's Laws of Motion, they discover the difference a rocket's payload affects the launch of a rocket. They develop a balloon rocket and test its...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Balloon Rockets

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: Curated OER

#### Rocket Riot

Students form "companies" of 3-4 students and build bottle rockets for analysis and experiment. This lesson uses NASA's RcketModeler Version 1.2 rocket simulator to evaluate each rocket's flight.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paper Rockets

Students design, construct, and fly paper rockets that travel the greatest distance possible across a floor model of the solar system. They construct small flying rockets out of paper and propel them by blowing air through a straw.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Altitude Tracking

Students construct simple altitude tracking devices for determining the altitude a rocket reaches in its flight. They estimate the altitude a rocket achieves during flight.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rocket Launch

Learners consider constraints which contribute to the design of a model rocket. They begin to analyze a model rocket's design and flight. They must be very specific in their thoughts and discussions.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rocket Me into Space

Learners engage in a lesson plan that reinforces rockets as a vehicle that helps us explore outside the Earth's atmosphere by using the principles of Newton's third law of motion. Also, the principles that engineers deal with when...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Getting in Shape Again

Students create rocket shapes out of pattern blocks. They draw a picture of a rocket, build a pattern block rocket following simple directions, and complete a graph of the shapes used.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Destination: Station

Students examine the significance of the International Space Station. They view and discuss photos of rockets, space shuttles, and the International Space Station, develop a graph of objects in the sky, and create drawings.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rocket Angles

Eighth graders create rockets that be launched at varying angles to determine which angle is best to launch at for the longest distance.
