Duct Tape Design is the sixth of ten topics in SCIENCE FUN FOR EVERYONE: 25 MINUTE GROUP LEARNING ADVENTURES FOR KIDS AND THEIR ADULTS.

If purchasing an individual topic, download the free introduction to the book, which provides helpful information on getting organized and presenting the topic effectively.
Duct Tape Design is fast-paced and energetic and promotes creative thinking and teamwork. Children learn about the history of duct tape, share stories about how they and their friends and families have used duct tape, and make folded duct tape triangular Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½footballsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and shoelaces. A sure way to pique interest prior to beginning this topic is to securely tape common objects such as toys or office supplies to a wall or other vertical surface before children enter the room. Make sure the objects will not cause injury if the duct tape fails to support them causing them to fall.
