This lab is an Incredible introduction into both variables and the scientific method. If you are looking for a hands-on lab that your students will LOVE, look no further! Students launch their rockets meters into the air while learning about how independent variables (the size of an ordinary antacid tablet) affect the dependent variables (the height of the rocket launch). Get ready to blast off into science, learning, and FUN!
Students will need access to a triple-beam balance to obtain the mass of their rockets. In addition, they will need film canisters (Not the black/grey ones, but the clear ones) that can be picked up or ordered easily.
The designed PDF can be enjoyed the way it is, but a straightforward editable word doc is included as well.
