  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out the Straw Rocket Experiment packet and turn to the variable that you are testing; Get out your science notebook and open to page 93; Put your name on a piece of lined paper and copy down the three laws of motion from p.93.
  2. Review for Quiz
  3. Experiment- Straw Rockets
  • Measure the new rockets (mass, length, diameter of base)
  • Conduct experiment- Test the new independent variable and record dependent variable in data table.


  • STUDY- Rocket & Newton’s Laws of Motion Quiz tomorrow 5/6 (pp.92-95 in ISN)
