NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

K-PS2-2

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate movement. Students can analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.

2-PS1-2

The Rocket Film Canisters can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate movement. Students can analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.

3-PS2-2

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate motion. Students can make observation and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

MS-PS2-2

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate movement. Students can plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

HS-PS1-4

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends on the changes in total bond energy.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

The Rocket Film Canisters are translucent and have a firm seal conducive to a number of classroom activities or storage of samples.

K-PS2-2

When the film canisters are loaded with various reactive chemicals that produce a gas, students can run trials to determine which variable gives the best lift off or push of the canister.

2-PS1-2

When the film canisters are loaded with various reactive chemicals that produce a gas, students can run trials to determine with variable gives the best lift off or movement of the canister.

3-PS2-2

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate motion. Students can plan an investigation with variables; make observation and/or measurements of the canister's motion to find pattern that can be used to predict future motion.

HS-PS1-4

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to create a simple rocket or to explore chemical reactions.

MS-PS2-2

The Rocket Film Canister can be loaded with baking soda and vinegar or Alka-Seltzer tablets and water to investigate movement. Students can plan an investigation with variables that test and provide evidence that the change in an object's motion is related to the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

Students can use the variety of materials in the Apollo 11 Adventure Kit to explore many aspects of the Apollo Space program. Lessons for physics, chemistry, engineering and much more are included. In addition, the kit includes comprehensive Apollo 11 lesson plans for language, history and mathematics to implement cross-curricular learning opportunities at the Elementary Level.

Students can use the instructions included in the kit to build and launch a Film Canister Rocket. The lessons deliver numerous learning opportunities about force and motion, transfer of energy and physics behind rocket science. Allow students to experience the challenges that the scientists and engineers encountered during the Apollo missions, during this 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing.
