Building Rocket #2

We started designing our rocket remembering Newton’s Three Laws of Motion which again helped us design the rocket. Mrs. Edwards said that we could change one thing about our rocket and we chose to change our fins because last time our fins were to big and bulky. When we made our fin template we made it skinny and tall because it can cut through the air so much easier and better.

When we started building we made the body first like usual. We took the small PVC again and then rolled the paper around it. Next we traced around the paperclip holder and then folded it a certain way to make it acone. We taped it to the rocket then used measuring tape to determine were the fins will go and how far away they will be from each other. We each had a turn to hot glue the fins to the rocket. It was fun because we changed our rocket and got to build it a different way.
