We are learning lots about space in our class. We wanted to find out how a space rocket moves so we made our own!!!!

All you need is ballons, sellotape,straws and string.

The force of the air shooting out of the end of the balloon pushed our rockets forward and along the string. It is like the way that the force of the fire coming out of the end of a real rocket pushes it up through the sky.

you can see how the balloon is pushed across the string>>>>>>>>

We had rocket races to see who had the fastest rocket. It was lots of fun.
