In this lesson, from The K-8 Aeronautics Internet Textbook, students will explore how exhaust in a rocket boat pushing out the back will pull the boat forward, just as Newton's Third Law of Motion states. There are links to other beginner, intermediate and advanced aeronautics lessons as well as ideas for integrated other curriculum areas into this study of aeronautics.
