This is a small torch that I made on a rainy day. It can be made pretty easily with a few materials. I hope you enjoy!
I took these pictures with my new Ipod Touch™ 4th generation. It's pretty cool!
If you have any suggestions on how to improve this let me know.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
- A steel rod 10'' to 13'' is a good length
- Cone type thing (I got mine out of a fan I took apart)
- Straw, grass, or a rag covered in something flammable (this will be the "light")
Step 2: Glue It Together
All you need to do is insert the point of the cone into the rod and glue it on.
You may want to put some glue in the rod before the cone goes in to make it more secure.
Optional: After your finished take a fine grit sand paper and sand down the excess glue.
Step 3: Put the Flammable Material Into the Cone
Stuff the flammable material into the cone and this step is done. Make sure it's not going to fall out and catch something on fire.
Step 4: It's Done!
Ok. Now your torch is done!
If you are asking yourself, "Why didn't he weld the two pieces together?". I tried that and the cone was literaly melted on the lowest welding temperature. Glue was the next best thing.
