Sometimes Science is Messy!
Sometimes science is messy!
I started the students in a review of the way molecules behave in different states of matter. I had them act out being molecules in a solid, a liquid and a gas.
Then we made this states of matter foldable.
Next we mixed up some oobleck. We used the ratio 2:1, cornstarch:water. The students experimented with it and recorded their findings.
We watched a couple of videos showing oobleck and non-Newtonian fluids and then recorded the vocabulary word: viscosity and our teacher tips.
