Using shapes to make air rockets

Shapes are amazing.
Teacher showed us how we can roll a rectangle to make a cylinder,
how we can fold and chop a rectangle to make a square or diamond and triangles,
how we can roll a circle to make a cone.
Armed with this knowledge we set about making air rockets.
Teacher had made the cylinders for us, because that is a slow job, but we stuck on the triangular fins, and made and stuck on the nose cones.  We also decorated our rockets.  We will fly them outside when the weather improves a little.
