Matahui Paper Mill

posted in: Class Blogs, Pohutukawa yrs 5,6 | 0

This week in class we have been investigating the properties of paper; translucent, strong, insulator, non magnetic, flexible, thin, floats…..

Then we learnt the processes involved in making paper from trees.

From this discussion we then started our own Paper Mill.

First we shredded the paper.


Then we blitzed the paper in the food processor to make a pulp.


We added a lot of water to this pulp before using our screens to make our first sheets.



We then taught our buddies how to make paper too.


I wonder what other materials we could make paper from?
