She starts out her video by talking about her classroom and what the plan is in case of an active shooter. She explains one problem she has is that her door, which was once made of metal, is now wood with a giant window.

Carly explains that she thought, "What can I give my students to help protect themselves?" and came up with the idea of a hockey puck.

Carly said that a hockey puck could really hurt you, especially 30 of them.

Carly tried keeping them on top of the desks, but she found that her students would just play with them. So she turned to double-sided tape for a better solution.

You grab a piece of tape and cut it with the scissors, then apply the double-sided tape to the hockey puck.
