Making 2D shapes in to 3D shapes, into Rockets!

We are very impressed with rectangles.

From a rectangle we are able to make other 2d shapes – smaller rectangles, squares and triangles.

From a rectangle we are able to make 3D shapes – cylinders, cuboids, triangular pyramids and hexagonal pyramids.  We can make a cone from a circle.

We were very impressed when we realised that we can make 2D shapes into other 2D or 3D shapes.

What did we do with our new found information……..we made more rockets!

Today we made air rockets.  Teacher has a couple of launchers that she made herself.  We will use bicycle pumps to launch these rockets next week during Space Week 2022.
