Today we made Oobleck. What is Oobleck you ask? It's simply corn starch and water, but the result is awesome. In my reading class we have been learning about matter and the different states of matter. Our next story is going to teach us about molecules. So to teach both of those we made Oobleck :) When Oobleck is made, it's matter is a mystery. Move your hand fast and apply force it's a solid. Move slowly or be still it run through your fingers like a liquid.
My students loved it and it really reinforced their learning on matter.
School is cool. Learning is fun.
