Using the R2K Water Rocket Kit, this guide moves beyond simply constructing and launching rockets to helping your students learn about apogee, forces, estimation, basic trigonometry, Newton’s laws of motion, and more.
The Water Rockets Teacher’s Guide contains NGSS, CCSSM, NCTM, NSTA, and ITEEA standards addressed; teacher and student instructions for a variety of math, science, and technology activities; pretests and posttests; resource pages; and puzzles. Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students.
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Pitsco Water Rockets – Getting Started Package (includes launcher and tire pump), 250 ml graduated cylinder or measuring cup, altimeter, beaker or graduated cylinder, and standard classroom tools and materials. Note: This list is for all activities; individual activities don’t require all listed materials.
