Understanding of the World activity – Make a space projection


Place plastic wrap (such as cling film) over one end of the toilet paper roll and secure in place with a rubber band or a hair bobble.


Place a sticker (or a cut-out shape with paper) in the middle of the plastic wrap. You could have a star, a moon, a rocket, a bear face etc.


Turn off the lights!


Shine a flashlight or the light from a torch on a mobile phone at the open end of the roll and point the projector towards a dark wall or ceiling.


Watch your projection!
