Slimy Science Lab

Slimy Science

Fun Laboratory experience for young students.

Students get their hands deep into science when they combine two liquid substances and create their own silly putty to take home.

Learners make estimates, measure and pour ingredients and observe and consider the structure and properties of matter.  They plan and carry out the steps necessary to experience a chemical reaction in their own hands.  (NGSS PS 1 A -B)
