How to Use a Paper Towel

This TED Talk- How to Use a Paper Towel- provides a useful solution for our paper towel problem (the one where we are using way too many paper towels). This video may not seem like it has a strong science connection- but I think it provides a very clear solution to an authentic human problem (technological design process). Plus, you probably won’t think about drying your hands the same way again.. shake… fold.

  1. I am going into my first year of teaching, and i will be teaching 8th grade science. I am super excited about teaching science because I love just about EVERYTHING having to do with science! I have heard of “Ted Talks” but I’ve never seen one myself. It was very enjoyable for me to watch, and even though it was only about a 4 minute lesson I learned so much! It really taught me that through engagement of the audience, and discussing relevant topics I can teach my students about science (i.e. conservation of natural resources). Thanks for posting this video. I will be looking for more “Ted Talks” for lesson ideas!
