Monday, 4/27/15- B Day

Learning Objective:

To design & conduct an experiment to determine how launch angle, force, length of rocket body, & number of fins affects the distance a rocket travels

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out the Straw Rocket Experiment packet and turn to page 2; Complete the data table on p.2.
  2. Experiment- Straw rocket
  • Follow direction 1-8 on the Straw Rocket Packet to build your rocket. Put your names on your rocket Find the mass, length, & diameter of the rocket
  • Model how to use the rocket launch & test launch angle
  • Conduct experiment- test launch angles and record results on data table


Complete the Conclusion for launch angle in the Straw Rocket Experiment Packet- due Thu 4/30
