Day 36 - It's Rocket Time in 213 - Sarah Vissochi - Pine Glen Fourth Grade

Do you know of Sir Isaac Newton and his three laws of motion? Fourth graders are learning all about force, motion and flight.  We are going to actually demonstrate Newton's third law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction!

Each year our amazing Burlington Science Center helps  as we learn about this topic by acquiring rockets to build in our classrooms.  Then Ms. Pavlicek and Mr. Musselman come to our school and assist us as we set them off.  Join the fourth graders of Pine Glen on Friday, October 31st as we watch how gravity, lift, thrust, and drag are put into effect.
3...2...1...BLAST OFF!

It takes a lot of listening skills, following directions carefully and teamwork to build our rockets.  Check out the progress we made this week!  Captions written by the students of 213.
