These paper rockets use a breath of air to blast off.
Children will need some help to make these, but they are worth it when you consider the physics they will be exploring.
Here’s how to make the paper rockets.
Cut 9×12 paper in 1/4 pieces (so that your pieces are 2 1/4″ x 12″). Each child gets a 1/4″ strip.
Help them fold it in half (hot dog fold).
Tape it, leaving one inch at the bottom.
Fold the top in a point and tape.
Tear paper into 3 strips on the untaped end.
When you’re done, decorate the rockets with markers. Slide a straw in the untaped end of the rocket, and blow on the straw to make the rocket fly.
