Every action has a reaction
Grade 4s conduct rocket balloon experiment
According to Newton’s Third Law of Motion: “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Grade fours in Ms. Quidayan's science class studied this law with a hands-on exercise.
The class performed Balloon Rockets experiments. Using balloons, string and straws, students were able to watch as air was released from the balloon, propelling it in one direction like a rocket.
This experiment allowed the class to work with altering variables to analyze the Action and Reaction.
