Toilet Paper Test: 15 minutes, full activity 45 minute class period
o You will Need: 4 different brands of toilet paper. At least one penny per group, pipettes or droppers, small cups of water.
o Procedure: Students will stand and hold a piece of toilet paper two students holding each end like a jump rope but stretched almost tight, (they should measure and make sure they are cutting off the same length of toilet paper each time). Place a penny in the center of the toilet paper and have a third student drop water, one drop at a time until the penny falls through. Students should drop the water on top of the penny each time for consistency and fill in the graph and scientific method questions that follow.
