Are you studying matter? This Rocket Lab will be a great culminating activity to your Matter Unit. After learning about chemical reactions, the students will build and launch a rocket. They will then use the data from their launch to create Line Plot Graphs.
This activity is great for the critical thinkers in your classroom!!! It allows them to observe, react, and make changes to their rocket for a successful launch!
***Update- Use fishing line attached to a whiteboard or chalkboard and string it across the room. Attach it to the other side of the room. Make sure the line is taut. I like to use a strong magnetic hook to attach the line and hang it on a chalkboard. I also like to use a little wd-40 or silicone spray on the line after every 3 or 4 launches***
