Students will create a strange substance called Oobleck and experiment with its properties. Through hands-on experimentation, watching a demo video, & reading an article on non-Newtonian Fluids, the students will discover that Oobleck has properties of both a liquid and a solid depending on the pressure applied. Your students will then write an argument, from all the evidence presented, to prove this claim. This activity is a fun and engaging way to meet a very important NGSS/Common Core Standard.

This Product Includes

★ A three-page student handout that guides them through the process of discovering Oobleck's state of matter and arguing to prove it! (PDF & Editable PowerPoint Doc Included!)

★ A key to example student responses and a full written example argument

★ Links to both a demo video (from YouTube) and a scientific article on non-Newtonian Fluids

★ A full-page explaining how I set up the supplies and manage the lab activity
