Product Description
Hi! This is a lab sheet for a fun class activity on Non-Newtonian substances; these are substances which maintain both solid and liquid properties. You may more commonly know this cornstarch and water concoction as "Ooblek" but your students will know it as hands-on learning and FUN!!

I used this with an 8th grade Earth Science class as we studied the layers of Earth's crust...but it can be fit in just about anywhere, or could be used as a reward or "Fun Friday" type activity with any intermediate to middle grade.

Have fun! This stuff is addictive to play with! **If you're really adventurous, try putting several sheets of plastic wrap over a speaker, then a few spoons full of the "Ooblek" mixture on top of the plastic-covered speaker...then turn up some music with a lot of bass and watch the magic!** If you like them, please rate my products! Thanks! ~Kristy Gross
