Mrs. Quinn's Fifth Grade Classroom

Saint's Peter and Paul School

Science Club will be starting March 11, 2015 at 2:15 pm until 3:15 pm!

For our first Science Club we will be working on making balloon rockets. Rockets work by way of jet propulsion. The principle behind it is based on Newton's Third Law of Motion: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When a rocket blows out gas at high speed, the rocket is pushed in the opposite direction. Balloon rockets follow the same principles, but in this case the gas is the air inside the balloon. In this project you'll build balloon rocket.


Reading Class:There is a Conflict Book Report due on April 1, 2015. The outline has been given in class. You need to have your book approved by Mrs. Quinn by March 13, 2015.

Social Studies Class: You will be working on your state project in Computer Class. If you miss a class or if you start falling behind the class, please be sure to make up the work you miss during lunch, after-school, or at home. When you are finish with this portion of the project in Computer Class you will then need to then print several pictures to print that will enhance your project. You will then take those pictures and essay on your state and create a poster to be displayed in our classroom.

Science Club Fun!
