Hayley: Something I Learned

I wanted to learn about how they make paper because it was the only thing I could think of. I liked learning about how they make paper.

Paper is made from fibers that come from plants and trees. The fibers are beaten and mixed with water to make what’s called pulp. Then you put the pulp on a fine screen called a mold. Then you let it dry. Then you take the paper off the mold.

Egyptians made another kind of paper called papyrus 4,000 years ago. The word “paper” comes from the Greek word papuros.
