    Challenger Accident Investigation Video Reflection Activity

    This assignment is a Video Reflection of the NASA documentary detailing the events surrounding the loss of OV-099, Space Shuttle Challenger, shortly after the launch of the 25th flight of the Space Transportation System, Mission STS-51L, on 28 January, 1986, and the subsequent investigation into the loss of the vehicle and its crew of seven. The investigation shows that the Solid Rocket Booster field joints were of an insufficiently fault-tolerant design and when the vehicle was launched at below-normal temperatures, hot exhaust gasses leaked on ignition, damaging the integrity of the field joint, leading to a breach in the external tank and destruction of the orbiter.

    This video is available on YouTube for free. This link is included with the download.

    Rocket Fundamentals & Manned Spacecraft Portfolio Reflective Journal assignment.

    This is an assessment tool where the STUDENT picks how they want to show you they have mastery of the subject. Two pages long.

    The students are given 13 different objectives they need to show mastery of. They do this by completing a project. They type is of their choice. These are some suggestions:

    • Make a collage
    • Comprise a song or rap
    • Construct a mobile
    • Make a poster
    • Assemble a scrap book
    • Traditional answer in writing (in a "project" form)
    • Other ideas you have (check with me first)

    I give this type of assignment the very first day of the unit. It is my belief that the teacher needs to let the students know exactly what they are expected to know by the time the unit is over. This also gives them time to work on their project.

    This assignment can be an additional assessment for students or the main assessment used.

    History of Rocket Technology Video Reflection

    This assignment is a Video Reflection of the History of Rocket Technology with R. Lee Ermey - Lock'n'Load. The video goes over the history of rockets in a very entertaining way.

    This video is available on YouTube for free. The link is included with the download.

    Several years ago I stopped using accompanying worksheets to videos I show in class. Too many times students are more focused in answering the questions, rather than absorbing what they are watching. But, I wanted the students to be actively engaged with the video. So, I started using “Video Reflections”.

    The video reflection handout has two columns on it. Student write what they have learned on the column on the left. They write down any questions they have on the column to the right. At the end of class, each student needs to tell the teacher something they learned, or a question they have.

    When given a choice, most students would rather have this type of assignment, compared to a worksheet.

    Reaction Blocks Activity

    This STEM hands-on activity demonstrates Newton’s Laws of Motion. Students experiment with a sling-shot like devise that throws a film canister filled with different objects. They explore to see how adding rubber bands and addition weight changes the distance the reaction block travels.

    The Rockets Study Guide is two pages ling. The front page has 30 key Primate Vocabulary Words that the students need to define. The second page has 6 open response type questions the students need to answer.

    The Rockets Justpardy Review Game PowerPoint has a similar concept to the game seen on TV

    Game Play Suggestion

    • Set up tables in front of the classroom, 1 table per team.
    • Divide the class up into 3-5 team, depending on class size.
    • Have each student taking a turn coming up that teams table at the front of the class.
    • Rotate, so each team gets to pick the Answer on the screen.
    • Each team representative in the front of the class writes down their answer.
    • For each correct answer the team gets a point.
    • The team with the most points when the game ends wins.

    I found that doing the game this way, each and every student participates. This prevents that one student from dominating the game.

    This is a fun way to review for a test.
