Reading Comprehension for January 28

Do you like to make lots of noise? Do you like to pop bubbles? Do you like to sneak up and scare people? If you do, you must like bubble wrap!

Bubble wrap was invented in 1960. Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding invented bubble wrap in their garage. They were trying to make plastic wallpaper. The wallpaper didn't work very well. It was good for wrapping things that break easily, though!
