Slime is all of the rage right now, right? My kids love making it. It doesn't matter the color, glitter or no glitter, glow in the dark or regular...they all want to make slime!
I love slime because it is easy and inexpensive to make. I have always wanted to bring it to the classroom though in the form of a science experiment. However, I always felt that was a bit of a stretch. It turns out, it isn't. Slime is Chemistry in its most basic form, which is great for elementary kids. I mean they are not really ready for Chemistry in its most advanced form, right?
I decided to create a few resources to go with the hands-on experiment. If you know me at all, you know I always try my hardest to integrate reading and writing into social studies and science. Does this mean social studies and science take a backseat? No way. These subjects are just as important as reading, writing, and math. However, if I can integrate a few things into one lesson...ding ding, that is a winner lesson for me!
Check out the preview to see what is included in this engaging lesson! The students will do an experiment, read a passage, answer comprehension questions and make observations!
Make it a goal to reach your students where they are. Slime is all the rage right now. My kids at home want to make it all of the time and classroom students do too. You will win some major brownie points by doing this hands-on activity with your students.
