For the IEYC ‘Blast Off’ unit, our Kindergarten 3 students arrived at school dressed as astronauts for their activity titled ‘Launching of Rocket’. Among the activities lined up for them on that eventful day included a virtual watch of a rocket launch, investigative activities about rockets, and bottle rocket craft. Another activity
that also piqued their exploration interests was learning to launch their bottle rockets into the air using two simple ingredients— baking soda and vinegar. Gasps and excitement filled the air as they marveled at the gas being released from the reaction until it built enough carbon dioxide pressure to finally launch the bottle rockets into the air.
