  • Grades:
  • K-2

Students design and construct simple rockets from cardstock, then customize rocket fin shapes and decorate their rockets. The paper rockets are designed to be used with the activity "Pop! Rocket Launcher."

The "Paper Rockets - Basic" activity is from the Rockets Educators Guide. Although grade levels are suggested, small modifications will enable more complex activities to be used successfully with other grade levels for observation, demonstration or complete lessons.
