Testing the Strength of PAPER

Testing the Strength of PAPER

This science investigation requires the children to test the strength of 4 different types of paper including: Plain paper Newspaper Paper towel Toilet paper You will need to prepare the 4 different types of paper and cut them into thin strips of equal length (10cm long 0.5cm wide). Get the children  to stick each type of paper onto the edge of their table and keep adding 10g weights (using a hook mass) until the paper snaps. Good luck!
