Are you looking for a STEM activity for your middle school science class? Your students will love this Slingshot rocket!
This STEM engineering activity will have your class measuring angles and distances while creating a slingshot rocket!
Materials are required to complete the lab activity. You will need:
- Masking Tape
- Large Rubber Band
- Craft Stick
- Eraser Pencil Cap
- Measuring Tape
Detailed instructions are included to help you with assembling your rocket!
But this is more than one lab activity! Three days of activities are included. You also get lab pages, a PowerPoint slide show on using a protractor, a lesson on measuring angles, follow-up pages, and answer keys for everything!
Students will identify variables in the experimental design and will identify potential and kinetic energy during the lab.
You may choose to give your class a short lesson on measuring angles and using a protractor. We’ve got you covered!
Very engaging activity. We worked on this for a week, and the students were really excited! Aligns well to our motion standards.Chelsea J.
My 4th graders loved making the darts and flying them. I loved that they used measurement. We did not do the protractor lesson, but it was still really great.Samantha P.
