Last week we mixed corn starch and water. The result was a ooey gooey substance that acts like a solid when left on the tray or when squeezed together and acts like a liquid if you let it melt between your fingers.
The children want to see it, touch it, and work with it. The love to explore what happens next, and will add their own ideas.
The next day we squeezed vinegar into baking soda and watched the reaction. Lots of little bubbles as it fizzled like a little volcano.
This week we made our own fun and easy slime. we used beads, googly eyes and other materials to make our own interesting creations, like a man with a nose made out of an eye.
Shabbat Shalom from the KB Scientists.
