4th Grade Rocket Day

The fourth grade teachers, students and parents had a great time today at Rocket Day.  With help from Ms. Pavlicek and Mr. Musselman from the Burlington Science Center students learned about such concepts as gravity, thrust and force.  Fourth graders also learned about Sir Isaac Newton (One of Mr. Musselman's favorite scientists).  Students greatly enjoyed launching their rockets and using their iPads to record the event.   Students walked away from this hands-on learning experience telling me that science and learning is fun.  The fourth grade teachers and I learned this first hand as we had a 'blast' launching our rockets.
