Everybody loves a good "how-to" film. Here we've assembled a selection of short films demonstrating how to do everything from getting the centres in chocolates to recycling paper.
How Do They Make Potato Chips? is one of a series of short and snappy videos that reveal the mysteries behind everyday things. Almost every child likes to eat potato chips and will love to learn how they're made. (Bet you can't watch this video just once!)

students eat some potato chips before you screen the film. Lower-grade
students can get a recipe card and write a recipe for how they think potato
chips are made. Lower grades can draw the process of how potato chips are made
in sequence. Have the class make some of their own chips. You can find recipes
online. Ask upper grades if they know how to incorporate flavours, such as
salt and vinegar and barbeque sauce. Upper grades can add narration to the
video as well. Have students discuss the nutritional value of potato chips.
