Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
To make a paper fuse, you will need:
•hobby knife or scissors
Step 2: Cut Your Coffee Filters
First, you have to cut the coffee filters into strips. They should be 1 inch wide and however long you want your fuses to be.
Step 3: Wetting Them Down
Next, Put your strip onto the wooden board and wet your paper towel. Use the paper towel to dampen your strip.
Step 4: Adding the Black Powder
Now, carefully spread the black powder evenly onto your coffee filter strip.
Step 5: Folding It Up
Next, fold your strip in half and then dampen it again with the wet paper towel.
Step 6: Rolling It Up
Start from the bottom left and carefully start to roll up your fuse at an angle.
Step 7: Finished!
Give it a good twist once it's all rolled up and wait for it to dry. Once it's dry, you'll have a useable fuse that works very well.
