This is a lesson to make and experiment with Oobleck.
These are half sheets for the activities that go back to back to save paper. (Reducing was talked about in another activity that for the Lorax.)

This activity was designed to be used as a station in for grades 3-6. The kids LOVE it! It with help from teachers or doing it more together, this could easily be done with young kids.
How I Used It:
When I did this activities, it was part of 5 stations that we only 20 minutes at each. I had 4 students to one container of Oobleck. Oobleck was pre-made and all test objects at each group. Pages 1 & 2 were sent home with students to read about. Page 3 we did aloud together in groups. Page 4 students made their predictions while as a class we discussed states of matter. Students than were able to drop each item in the Oobleck and record their findings.
