This Animated Step-by-Step Craft resource provides instructions for making slime that can be embellished with confetti/glitter and colored with food coloring. There are three versions of this resource. This is the Regular (non symbol-supported version).
This resource can be displayed on the 'big screen' (interactive whiteboard, large screen TV using Apple TV) or the 'small screen' (computer monitor, iPad/Android tablet using the free Microsoft PowerPoint app). Please visit the Animated Step-by-Steps blog for further information. http://animatedstepbysteps.blogspot.com
In addition to the great sensory qualities of slime, it can also be used as a science project highlighting the properties of polymers. White glue is a polymer (a large chain of molecules with smaller units that repeat) allowing glue to be poured. When liquid starch is added to the glue-water mixture, the polymer chain is altered causing the new mixture to thicken into slime. The instructions for slime are similar to the instructions for flubber. They vary only in the relative proportions of glue, water and liquid starch. Both slime and flubber differ in their relative positions along the solid-liquid continuum. While slime is positioned toward the solid end of the continuum, slime has qualities that are more like liquids.
Stirring while adding seems to be the key to success when making slime. I am told it is important to shake the liquid starch in its container before you measure.
