Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making a Hole
So first, go ahead and Grab a ping pong ball. Grab the scissors and anywhere you'd like poke and make a whole about the width of an average pen. If you have a drill, just go ahead and drill a hole as well.
IMPORTANT, Make sure you only make 1 hole!!!
Step 2: Cutting the Other Balls Into Pieces
After you've made a hole in the ball, set it aside. Now grab the rest of the balls and poke them with the scissors, but this time cutting the whole balls into pieces. It doesn't matter what size, but not too big.
Step 3: Combining the Balls
After you finish cutting the ping pong balls, go back and grab the first ball which you made a hole into. Grab the pieces of the other balls and slowly (Don't cut yourself) insert them through the hole. After you're done with that, grab a straw and cut about a 3-inch piece. Grab that piece, and insert it through the whole and push it down.
Step 4: Aluminum Foil
Now pull out the Aluminum foil, and cut a small piece (enough to wrap half a sandwich). Cover the ball with the foil, don't cover the straw, just where it meets with the ball. Make sure to cut off excess aluminum foil.
Step 5: Final Step
Now Grab your creation because its ready to light. BUT!!! Make sure you light up the bottom of the smoke bomb because if you're just going to place it on the floor, it'll direct the smoke out through the straw. Now if you throw it, it'll direct the smoke through both holes (The one you cut, and the one you burned through) The point I'm trying to make is, that if you want to direct the smoke in a certain direction, place it rather than throw it, therefore burn the bottom.
