Paper Comes From Trees? Recycled Paper?

These ideas are too abstract...unless you actually make paper.  First graders begin by changing toilet paper into writing paper. Then paper making begins to make sense.

BNS first graders turned studio 106 A into a paper factory.

First tear 20 squares of  toilet paper into tiny pieces.

Draping a scarf of toilet paper helps speed up work.

Keep tearing.
Just a few more squares to go.
Then add water.
Add natural elements such as seeds.
Shake 150 shakes.
Strain and dry.

Lots of kids were planning on changing toilet paper over break.
Did they?  Let us know.
