Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: May benefit from watching their peers create their designs first. Children with poor motor skills will require support with mouse control. You could consider using a touchscreen graphics editing program. Provide children with a pre-cut nose cone template and they should design just the steepness of the nose cone and the exact location of where it should attach.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to use a greater range of the tools within Sketchpad and could even use it to design an image which could be printed and stuck to the their rocket.
