Product Description
Do you have a pile of scrap paper and a few minutes for science?

Challenge students to figure out a way to walk through the paper. If you have any students familiar with this activity caution them to explain after the demonstration. They might have a variation to share or be able to help classmates with the activity!

Fold a sheet of paper in half along the dashed line and then make the vertical cuts along the solid lines. Cut the center section of the fold itself along the heavy solid line. Do not cut through the dashed fold lines on each end! Unfold the paper carefully and students will see that the paper has formed a long chain of connected sections of paper.

Explain to students that the paper still has the properties of paper. The change in the paper is a physical change.

Hand out a sheet of scrap paper to each student to repeat the procedure.

Option: Challenge students to cut a loop large enough for several students to walk through.

Option: Challenge students to cut a loop using a 3"x5" index card that is large enough for a person to walk through. (It's possible!)

Option: Ask students to show this activity to a person at home and explain the physical change the paper has undergone.
