It doesn’t get much cooler than slime! It’s ooey, it’s gooey, its sticky and slimy, it’s just plain FUN! Our 3’s and 4’s classes made their very own slime and the giggles and laughs filled the school. We discussed how it’s very important to follow directions when doing a science experiment, just like it’s important to follow the recipe when cooking. In order for an experiment to be successful we need to be careful with our measurements and follow the instructions very carefully so that we add the correct amount of each ingredient. It was messy and fun adding each ingredient and working them together to make something completely new. The kids learned that by manipulating the sticky wet glue mixture with their hands, they could create the perfect slime. The kids loved stretching their slime or squishing it and best of all they loved how it bounced when they made it into a ball.
