You probably don't need to full machinery of special and general relativity for the experiments described below:

You could study the collision of billiard balls
or the ballistic pendulum http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/Hbase/balpen.html
or Newton's Cradle http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/scenario/cradle.htm
or carts on a track http://www.physics.ucla.edu/demoweb/demomanual/mechanics/second_law/dynamic_track_demos.html
or many more: http://www.google.com/search?q=conservation+of+momentum+lab
