18 Nov Making Oobleck

Mrs. Dutton’s Kindergarten students had a lot of fun making Oobleck as they are continuing to learn about solid, liquid and gas in Science Class. They had so much fun. They especially loved touching it too.
Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid, meaning it is neither a liquid nor a solid. It may appear to be a solid or a liquid at times, but it behaves differently from a typical solid or liquid. Making oobleck is an excellent science project for demonstrating how pressure may alter the properties of certain materials. It’s similar to how temperature affects water’s qualities. Water freezes when it is exposed to cold or freezing conditions. Warm temperatures, on the other hand, melt ice and turn it into a liquid.
