    Newton's Laws made easy! Here’s a set of 6 STEM challenges in a money-saving bundle that all involve Newton’s Laws of Motion! Students will be learning about the second and third laws specifically and designing Bottle Cars, Egg Cars, Newton’s Cradles, Paper Plate Balloon Cars, Balloon Carousels, and Balloon Rockets! Fabulous and fun!

    Please note: This package contains six challenges. Each may be purchased separately and in bundles of three. Check the 3-packs below before you purchase!

    What are the challenges?

    Build a Bottle Car

    • Students will use materials to design and build a balloon-powered car.
    • The car must roll on a straight path and travel as much distance as possible before the balloon is exhausted.
    • This challenge will demonstrate the third law of motion and also demand that students work together to design wheels, axles, and the blowing mechanism of their cars.

    Build an Egg Car

    • Students will use materials to design and create a vehicle.
    • The vehicle must transport cargo down a ramp in the fastest and safest way possible.
    • The students will need to plan the best way to overcome friction and maintain enough speed to make it down the ramp.
    • In addition, the vehicle will have to be stable enough to transport the precious cargo (an egg) without damaging it.
    • Finally, because my students really love this feature, I added a budget. Students must “purchase” materials to use and stay within a set spending amount.

    Build a Newton’s Cradle

    • Students will use materials to design and create a Newton’s Cradle.
    • In this event, students will review what they know about the laws of motion- especially the third law.
    • Students will have to build the frame for the device, a way to attach string to the marbles, and a way to attach string to the frame.
    • This can include measuring as the length of the strings is a factor. The option of using hot glue for the assembly is yours to make.
    • This was tested with fifth graders.

    Balloon Cars

    • Students create a car that rolls using the power of a blown-up balloon.
    • This challenge will demonstrate the third law of motion.
    • Will the car roll? Will it travel on a straight path? How many balloons should they use? Your students will amaze you with their designs and ways to make this car work.

    Balloon Rockets

    • Students experiment with ways to make a balloon travel along a vertical path successfully.
    • They will be challenged to use supplies in the most efficient way and launch the balloon rocket as high as possible.
    • This challenge will demonstrate the third law of motion.

    Balloon Carousels

    • Students use some very simple supplies to create a carousel that turns.
    • The carousel is powered with a balloon or balloons and must stay aloft on its central turning pole.
    • Will it turn? How fast can it turn? How will you attach it to the central pole? The problem-solving and immediate modifications to designs are really fun to watch!
    • This challenge will demonstrate the third law of motion.

    What is included?

    • Each challenge includes detailed step-by-step teacher directions with hints and tips scattered throughout.
    • Each includes lab sheet sets, answer samples, photos, and extra tips.
    • Each challenge includes editable lab sheets and editable constraints posters.
    • Scoring rubrics are also included for each challenge!

    This set is a combination of six STEM Challenges. If you prefer they may be purchased separately:

    Or grab the sets in smaller bundles! (This 6-pack contains two 3-packs! Check the 3-packs before purchasing!)
