How to make a Cylinder from paper (cardboard)

Let`s learn how to make three-dimensional geometric figures from paper. During the first lesson we will make a paper cylinder.

At first glance it seems that this DIY is very simple. But on yesterday’s lesson at school I saw the difficulties encountered by the children during the making of this DIY. So I decided to tell the whole course of manufacture in detail, step by step.

Draw this diagram with a ruler:
