Students will have a blast launching these incredible rockets!
They will build a rocket complete with nose and fins from a 2 liter bottle. Simple included instructions and materials include water, a pump, needle, and cork. You will need to search for or create your own launch pad. We used an aluminu
Want your students to study and launch water bottle rockets but need guidance?
Well, I am here to help. The PowerPoint in this bundle will take your students through key vocabulary such as drag, ballast, thrust and discuss how Newton’s Three Laws affect the launch of a rocket.
Day 1, students
This STEM unit includes:
* DIY instructions for building a launch pad that you can use for years to come.
* student research guidelines
* project design guidelines
* journal questions
* data sheets
* launch instructions
Teach students about the scientific method using this fun and engaging water bottle rocket project. Students learn from their mistakes, have a chance to rebuild and retest, then conclude with a science experiment testing one variable involved in rocket launching that they learned about during the co
A fun experiment where students get to build model rockets out of water or soda bottles. The activity culminates on an outdoor "launch day". This will require that you have a bottle rocket launch pad. These can be made or excellent ones can be purchased from your science supply company. Kids
The Water Bottle Rocket Project is a perfect project for students to show off their design and science skills.This project is geared towards students between 5th and 8th grade, and focuses on using the design cycle - RESEARCH, PLANNING, CREATING, EVALUATING - to create water bottle rockets.This proj
Water Bottle Rocket TEST over Newton's Laws of Motion, the design process and engineering basics like troubleshooting and benefits of adding features to the rockets. Set up as a 115 point test to be given after the design and launch of Water Bottle Rockets.
Build and launch a rocket that really flies using a water bottle, popsicle sticks, a wine cork, tape, crayons Alka Seltzer tablets and water. This experiment covers Engineering (building the rocket), Art (decorating the rocket) and Science (the chemical reaction between the Alka Seltzer and water).P

This packet walks students through NASA's engineering design process of Ask-Imagine-Plan-Create-Test-Improve to create a bottle rocket. It can be used as a summative assessment for forces and energy unit. There are analysis questions and a rubric included. This product contains a PDF and a link t
A worksheet designed for a middle school water bottle rocket project in a STEM elective. It covers benchmarks and tested standards for the Florida SSA (8 grade FCAT) on forces and motion and has students engaging in a fun project.This worksheet is meant as a second worksheet to the project where stu
This is a sample story from a collection of stories about the challenges and rewards of teaching, as well as classroom tragedies and successes, that take place in inner city public schools. These fifty vignettes describe human-interest, middle school (sixth to eighth grade) events based on the work
The Eggonaut Rocket Project is a fun and hands on way for students to apply many science principles learned in class.
In this projects students use two 2-liter bottles to build a rocket, with the goal of launching the rocket as high as possible in the air, then deploying the eggonaut (egg) and par
This is an outline for a STEM challenge involving 2 liter pop bottle rockets. I use an Aqua Port launcher to shoot of my rockets. It can be purchased through Amazon. The challenge is to create the rocket that can achieve the highest average flight time. I have 3 students record each rocket launch an
When you purchase and download this resource, you will receive a 14 page booklet. It includes all you need to achieve success in teaching your children about rockets - focused on the forces of air, water and chemical reactions - using recycled materials and minimal resources.This project is aimed at
This science experiment has to do with the reactions of acids and bases to launch film canister rockets. Students test different ways to combine Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to get a bigger reaction in their rockets. This sheet gives the students a list of materials, step-by-step instructions for
These plans are a step-by-step guide on how to build a cheap but quality water rocket launcher with a complete parts list. Steps are accompanied with pictures for clarification. This launcher will sustain launch after launch and will always be a favorite activity of your students. Launcher will enab
These plans are step-by-step (with pictures) to build a cheap but quality water rocket launcher with a complete parts list. Launcher will enable you to propel 1, 2 or 3 soda pop (PET) bottles over 250 ft. into the sky using only water and compressed air from a bicycle pump, a foot pump for a car,

1. Students build and design a water rocket using a soda bottle as the base of their rocket. After their first build, students go outside and launch with the goal of having the longest time aloft (from takeoff to landing).
2. Students are then given an additional day or 2 to redesign their rocket f
