Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Grab a Chair
Go get a chair so you can reach the smoke alarm
Step 2: Get a Plastic Grocery Bag, and Perhaps a Rubberband
Go find a plastic bag..and if you have one handy, a rubber band
Step 3: Wrap the Bag Around the Alarm
Wrap it so that it's pretty much air tight and tie off the bag so it's snug. If you got the rubberband, then stretch it around the bag and the alarm to secure it. The alarm will stop hassling you since the smoke can't reach the sensor. You can then continue to burn your food in peace.
Step 4: Remove Bag When Smoke Clears!
Be sure to remove the bag when the smoke clears. It will be dangling from the smoke alarm so it isn't easy to forget to do.
When adding the final step to this, I got a bit confused and clicked the "Done" button rather than "add step". So that's why this final but crucial step was missing.
Thanks for the comments and the heads up on this missing step!
