Product Description
Who wouldn’t want to make a gnome hat parachute? Not so easy the way we do it . . .

One of the qualities I like my GATE students to develop is a willingness to persist on difficult tasks. So many things come easily to them that sometimes they have a tendency to avoid a tough problem.

This little 3D drafting and engineering project in which students draw a net for a cone and then construct a three dimensional cone is not as easy as it seems. It takes grit, precision, and careful reading of instructions.

As an independent project, it is even more challenging. The directions are written so that it may be used as an independent project for students needing more challenge or as a “center” activity.

Once the three dimensional cones have been completed, students may choose optional challenge activities and extend their learning into a real world STEM challenge—the gnome hat parachute.

I urge you to try this out first. It gets a little confusing, and it helps to know what challenges the students will encounter. Plus, you get to make your very own gnome hat parachute. I bet even your Pinterest friends haven’t done that.
