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. 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 wallsheet is the third of four posters on Newton's Laws and a copy is available on this website.
