Beads and paper clips pattern in Synthetic Fibres and Plastics – Class 8 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Synthetic Fibres and Plastics

Activity Name: Beads and paper clips pattern in Synthetic Fibres and Plastics

Activity Description:

Beads and paper clips pattern in Synthetic Fibres and Plastics - Class 8 Science Experiment

In this activity, students will explore the concept of polymer formation by observing the pattern of paper clips joined together, similar to beads in a necklace. The activity aims to draw a parallel between the structure of paper clip chains and the chain-like structure of synthetic fibers made from polymers.

Required Items:

  1. Paper clips

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Take a few paper clips.
  2. Join the paper clips together to form a chain-like structure, similar to how beads are strung together in a necklace.
  3. Observe the pattern of the paper clip chain.
  4. Compare the pattern of the paper clip chain with the pattern of beads in a necklace.

Experiment Observations:

Students will notice that the paper clip chain, like the bead necklace, forms a long chain-like structure made up of separate units (paper clips) joined together.


  1. Be careful while handling paper clips to avoid any injuries.
  2. If the paper clips are difficult to join, use pliers or tools to aid in the process.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

The activity demonstrates the concept of polymer formation. Just like paper clips join together to form a chain, synthetic fibers are made of polymers, which are formed by joining small monomer units together. This helps students understand the basic structure of synthetic fibers and plastics.
