5th Grade Rocket Racer Challenge

In this challenge, students created a rocket racer vehicle in order to illustrate Newton’s Third Law of Motion. After a week of study, design, tweaking, and re-adjusting… the students were ready to compete.

Upon completion and improvement of the designs, Mrs. Knight planned a “Race Day” for 5th grade classes to gather together in the gym and race their vehicles two at a time. The entire lower school completed a bracket while watching and cheering on the competitors.

Take a look at the video below to see the students in action!
