Paper rocket activities using basic shapes


Paper rocket activities using basic shapes
I`d like to share with you these links



They are all on one topic- how to make a paper rocket.
I used these ideas in my class with my eight year old students and they loved it. To get them speak English before and through all the steps of making the rockets we kept repeating simple instruction such as : draw a square or I am drawing a circle, etc.. 
I hope you`ll enjoy it ;-)

I`ve just made a worksheet which goes well with the youtube link
but I didn`t post it for two reasons:
1) I thought   that would be  plagiarism
2) I have no clue how to make a doc file on my Japanese computer. All software in in Japanese and when we install English version  other technical problems appear.
 (I published my first worksheet on this website but I was just lucky to click something properly)
