A Chain Reaction is a sequence of little events where one object hits another object to create a reaction.
You can think of it like your morning routine. Normally, we have a series of things that we do in a particular order before we go to work or school.
We get out of bed, then go to brush our teeth, take off our PJs, have a shower, put our school clothes on, and then we eat breakfast, and so on. It is always in a particular order: one action leads to the next action. With our Chain Reaction though, if one thing doesn’t happen, the next wont happen either!
What will I need?
For a Chain Reaction you can use anything you want! We like to use these different objects you find around the house.
- Lollypop sticks
- Coat hangers
- Masking tape (to help!)
