Slimed!

  Science is fun! Today we created slime in our classroom. Students saw that, strangely enough, some mixtures ( if they are polymers)  have the properties of both solid and liquid. We mixed borax and water, adding to that  a mixture of glue and water, with some food color for extra interest.  Suddenly, we had our slime. It was fun to observe the process. Here are a few photos from the classroom today. A special thanks to Caleb's dad, Tim who was on hand to assist!  Thanks also to those who sent in extra glue so everyone could participate... It is wonderful to have such thoughtful support for our class!  Dr. Dunkel stopped by about 2:20 and heard all about the properties of "slime".
