PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The attached file contains awards for the Balloon Powered Car Project. The awards are designed as a PowerPoint file and can be printed on 11x 8.5 award paper or cardstock. Awards are customizable and can be personalized to reflect student names, school year, class and teacher's name.

Physics Project: Balloon Powered Car
can be found in my TPT store. After students test their cars, collect data, and apply the physics learned in the unit I have a fun day of competition where students can enter their cars in three events. There are three additional events that I determine when grading the cars. When discussing the project I share with my students that we will have a competition and what the events will be.

Events include:
--Fastest Car
--Farthest Distance
--Best Trick Car (sometimes the car doesn't perform like it should during testing but it can do a cool trick)
--Best Theme Car (voted on by teacher- sometimes students will decorate their car with a theme)
--Most Creative Car (voted on by the teacher- most creative use of materials and thinking outside the box)
--Best in Show (voted on by the teacher- best overall car in terms of how it functions, creativity, how it was assembled)

*To go along with the awards, I usually have some sort of a prize for the first place winners.
