This educational wallsheet illustrates Newton's Third Law of Motion. The accompanying activity is an experiment in which students create a balloon and straw rocket. Students must figure out how to shoot the balloon from the back of the classroom and hit the blackboard in the front of the room using a fishing line as a track for the balloon to follow. Activity worksheets are easily copied for classroom use. The activity provides teachers with background information, pre-activity reading, pre-activity discussion questions, an assessment, and post-activity discussions that tie the classroom activity back to the Swift satellite. This activity requires the addition of readily available materials. This wallsheet is the third of four posters on Newton's Laws and a copy is available on this website.
