BSS project - making paper
For Big Science Saturday today, the family made paper. It was much easier than I expected, and our papers turned out terrific. See for yourself.
The boys now know how paper is made, sort of. They know how it's made from recycled paper. I tried to explain how it's made from trees, but they didn't seem to have that look of recognition in their eyes. And it was pretty hopeless explaining how continuous paper production might work.
Oh, well. All I hope to do is expose them to concepts. I'm not a teacher. I just like this stuff.
