Explain to the class that they are going to work in small groups to construct their own space rocket. Give out a variety of exciting materials including boxes, plastic bottles, paper, card, tissue paper, tape etc. Over the course of 15 minutes, let the pupils explore the materials with no restrictions – let them go mad!
Photograph and video the creation process with an iPad. A small team of pupils could collect footage for a later documentary on the project.
