    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.

    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.
