Back when my Mississippi Launch Team had the TOUR DE DEUCES, they did not get to participate in the LAUNCHES because of the weeklong bad weather. I told them we would try to do something with rockets later. Last week we built 9 paper rockets of the LAUNCH ROCKET IN PROGRESS! I had the 27 kids to direct in building the rockets myself....WAY TOO MANY to try to handle with hands on instruction. We divided into 9 teams of 3 kids each. Since they were studying the solar system, we decided to decorate the rockets as the 9 planets! Some paper rocket designs are quite challenging, but this one seemed doable. Even though some teams had excellent craftsmanship, some others were quite questionable as to flyability!:rolleyes: Anyway we pressed on. I was presently SURPRISED when we went to launch as ALL the teams "planets" took to the skies....some just straighter and higher than others....but NO crazy screaming mimis!!!:eek: :eek: Here are the ASTRO...NUTS????
 
Here is the pile of rockets after a successful afternoon of launching with the pile of SPENT motors! ALL are able to FLY AGAIN!!!:D :D
 
Upon closer inspection, this may be my favorite of the kid's "planet designs"!!! One little girl's OWN addition to their rocket.... a DEUCES WILD!!!!!:eek: :D :D
 
that's awesome! those smiliing faces tell the whole story!
