Visit at least three websites on how to build a periscope; you may visit more. Write down the steps to build a periscope of your choice in your notebook. Bring to class on Monday.
In an email, send the following:
- Attach three (3) links to the websites that you visited.
Bring your materials to class on Monday. If you cannot provide certain materials, please contact me via email and I will attempt to assist you. If you don't have mirrors, you may use another reflective material such as aluminum foil. The periscope may be no bigger than a regular box of cereal.
Create a detailed sketch of your periscope. Be sure to indicate each item on the periscope and where it is placed. Include dimensions.
- Show me your sketch in class.
- You (and a partner) will construct a periscope during class on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Do not build your periscope at home.
