As part of the Discovery Science project, Room 20 completed an experiment called Rocket Launch. We had a lot of fun participating in this experiment. First, our teacher divided us into groups. In our groups we had to blow into a balloon five times. Then we had to stand on a line with our arm outstretched and let go of the balloon. We used measuring sticks to measure how far the balloon travelled (some went a lot further than others!!). We repeated this twice and got the average distance the two balloons travelled. Some lucky people got to take their balloons home with them! Some children were chosen to create a bar chart representing the information the class gathered during the experiment. We had lots of fun and we hope we do well.
