Interactive video lesson plan for: Magic Tube - Sick Science! #134

Activity overview:

Tissue paper is known for a few things. For example, tissue paper is soft and nice for blowing your nose. Tissue paper is not, however, known for its tensile strength. Most people wouldn't be surprised if a common housefly could tear through a piece. In the Magic Tube - Strong Tissue Paper experiment, though, we'll show you a way to make tissue paper nearly impenetrable.
