 Newton’s Laws and Water RocketsDay 2
Lesson Objectives:
Test water rockets2.
Be able to identify what worked well in rocket design and what didn’t
To finish building rockets:
Rocket from last week 
Scissors, construction paper, cardboard
Duct tape
To launch:
Water rocket launch pad
Bicycle pump
Finish Building Rockets (10 minutes)
Have students get into their groups from last week, and remind them that theyhave 10 minutes to finish building. (
NOTE: Do not let the building process last morethan 10 minutes, because the launching section cannot be cut short.
Brief Review of Physics (5 minutes)
Remind students about Newton’s three laws of motion, but focus on the 2
laws (F = m*a, every action has an equal but reaction). Talk again about how theyapply to the rocket flight, as it will help the students decide how much water to put intheir bottles. (Too little water won’t provide a large enough reactive force on the bottle, but too much water will make the rocket too massive and it won’t fly very high either.)
