Make Periscope
Stand box up with the “T” at the top. Place your triangle pattern along the bottom edge of the box, folded edge slanting upward. See Picture.
Draw a line on the box along the slant. Cut a slit on this line.
Around the corner from the top end of the slit, cut a window big enough to look through.
Place the triangle pattern at the top of the box, on the same side as the lower slit, folded side slanting down. See Picture. Draw a line along the slant. Cut a slit on this line.
Around the corner from the top slit draw and cut out a top window. This window must be on the opposite side of the box from the bottom window.
You will need mounts for your mirrors. Draw and cut out two pieces of cardboard as wide as the box and a little longer than the slant of your triangle pattern. Glue one mirror to each mount. See Picture.
Slide one mirror in the lower slit, looking-side up. Slide the other mirror in the top slit, looking-side down.
