Up periscope! You’re deep under the ocean surface in a submarine. What’s going on above you? Make your own periscope and find out!
Sailors deep in the ocean in submarines can see what is going on above the surface when they use a periscope! Make your own replica periscope to look over walls, around corners, or play in a pretend sub!
Ask an adult to cut off the pointed tops of two clean, quart-size (1-liter) cardboard milk cartons. On the bottom of one carton, cut an opening. Leave some of the carton around the opening.
Place the carton on its side so that the newly cut opening is facing your right side. On the side of the carton that is facing up, measure up the left edge 2 ¾ inches (7 cm), and place a mark there. Draw a diagonal line from the bottom right hand corner of the carton up to the mark. Ask an adult to cut along the diagonal line, stopping just short of the edge of the carton.
Slide one small mirror into the carton through the diagonal cut. Tape it in. You should be able to look through the opening you first cut out and see the ceiling. If not, readjust the mirror until you can see the ceiling.
Follow steps 2 through 4 with the second carton.
Stand one carton straight up with the opening on the bottom facing you. Place the second carton upside down (the opening at the top facing away from you).
Stretch the bottom of the upside-down carton with your fist and slide it on top of the first carton. Glue the two cartons together with Crayola® School Glue. Air-dry flat.
Cover the periscope with construction paper. Draw leaves, clouds, or other camouflage designs on white paper. Color the designs with Crayola Washable Markers. Cut them out with Crayola Scissors. Glue designs to your periscope. Air-dry before you play. Up
