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.

I use to do Oobleck with my students years ago! Hmmm? I might have to pull this out again along with Flubber and do a mini-unit on polymers. It would fit in with my Kitchen Chemistry unit I usually do at the end of the year when attention spans are null! Kids just LOVE these kinds of science activities! Once again, I really like what you do with INB's. You are giving some terrific ideas for a Science notebook!
Thanks for linking up again this week for TBT!
