Rocks are made of minerals, and minerals often have crystal shapes. In this fun activity about geometry in nature, learners create their own crystal shapes out of paper.
Create an illusion where it appears that your hand has a hole in it. You'll see the results from when one eye gets conflicting information.
In this activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Garbology Activity), learners will prepare sheets of homemade recycled paper from several different source pulps.
By making models of light waves with paper, learners can understand why different colors appear in bubbles.
Create beautiful spirals by drawing a straight line. This sounds crazy, but you can with a turntable (a record player or lazy susan), paper, and pen.
In this activity, learners keep track of how much paper the group uses in a week. Build awareness of paper waste, while strengthening measurement and estimation skills.
The Chinese invented paper made from plants and cloth about 2,000 years ago. Learners follow a similar process to make paper from recycled paper.
In this activity, learners will experiment with textures, shapes, and materials and create their own unique masterpieces.
Learners make their own paper. They start by shredding old newspaper, clean toilet paper, and clean paper towels.
Which one of your eyes are dominant? Do they act independently or are they equally "in control?" This activity explores how your eyes work (or don't work) together.
In this simple activity, learners discover how a mere piece of paper can be used to hold up the weight of a heavy book.
Do you have a hard time matching paint swatches with your furniture? When you consider human perception, color is context dependent.
Learners will do an experiment to determine which type of paper is strongest while focusing on variables and collecting data.
This science activity demonstrates the dominant eye phenomena. What does your brain do when it sees two images that conflict?
In this activity on page 11 of the PDF, learners follow simple steps to recycle old newspaper into new paper.
In this activity, learners explore the properties of paper by constructing and modifying paper airplanes.
Learners analyze mixtures of dyes using filter paper chromatography. They place spots of the different dyes at the bottom of a piece of filter paper, and hang the paper to touch the surface of water.
In this activity, learners manipulate paper to build original 3-dimensional sculptures. Appropriate for any age, learners can use fingers to tear, crumple, or fold, and if available, scissors to cut.
In this activity, learners explore the question "What is paper?" Learners discover the processes and materials required to make paper while experimenting with different recycled fibers and tools.
