Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed
For this Instructable you will need
a Q card
a jar with a lid
Step 2: Folding the Q Card
First fold the card in half so you have a crease, then unfold.
Now fold both sides into the center.
Fold that in half and then this step is done!
Step 3: Making the Smoke.
Take the lighter and light the end of the folded Q card on fire.
Now lightly blow the fire out so it smokes.
Quickly insert the tip into the jar and cover the top with your hand while pinching the folded Q card in between your thumb and index finger.
Step 4: Finishing Up
When the smoke is your desired thickness quickly remove your hand and the folded Q card and screw on the lid.
The smoke will last for about 10 to 15 mins.
Step 5: How This Works
Smoke wants to rise so if you block its exit it has nowhere to go. Its as simple as that.
Hope you enjoyed!
