Acting as CFI, my student and I took runway 18, the active, for takeoff. We were told to make our north departure from a right downwind. While turning crosswind we experienced engine roughness and applied carburetor heat with no results. I took command of the aircraft and declared an emergency to runway 5 which ended in an uneventful landing. The aircraft was checked out by our maintenance personnel and no problems were evident during a run-up and test flight. The cause was believed to be carburetor ice.
