Launching Rocket #1

Today is 10-4-19 and today is the day that class 5C launched there rockets.

There are 6 groups. The Astro-rockets, The 4 Rocketeers, The Three Musketeers, The Astros, and The Shooting Stars (my group). 

We all went outside to the field and Mrs. Cooper set up the launch pad. The first group was the Astros. They all put on their safety goggles and the air pumpers put the air in the rocket and then the countdown master counted down from ten and then the launcher pushed the button and the rocket went up. There were 4 clinometer readers because the sun could be in someone’s eyes and they would not get a good reading. There were also 2 people taking videos and recording the countdown and launch. This routine went for all of the groups.

The next day, we took the average height of the rocket, transferred it into feet and added the average height of a fifth grader. then, we wrote the data down on a piece of paper, we put our groups rocket with it and everyone walked around and looked at the other groups data.
