Using 2D and 3D shapes to make air rockets

Using 2D and 3D shapes to make air rockets

We wanted to make rocket tops that we can launch with teacher’s rocket launcher.

We discovered that a 2D circle can change into a cone just by cutting the middle half way and squeezing with our fingers.

We discovered that a rectangular card can be rolled to make a cylinder.

We know that triangles will make great fins.

Now we are ready to assemble our own rockets.

Our rockets are ready for launching now!
