Hooked on Science - Slime Bubble

AUGUST 20TH – 26TH

INGREDIENTS

- 2 Bottles of Elmer’s 8.75 oz Magical Liquid Slime Activator
- 12 Bottles of Elmer’s 6 oz Glue
- Food Coloring

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: Create a batch of slime by mixing together the glue, activator, and food coloring. Describe and classify the slime by its observable properties.
STEP 2: Place the slime on a large, flat surface. Have several people, carefully pull the slime, in different directions. It should be thicker around the edges and thinner in the middle.
STEP 3: Together, not too fast, carefully move the slime up and down, in the air.
STEP 4: Together, drop the slime, on the flat surface and observe. Describe how your slime bubble can be used as a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

EXPLANATION

The slime is matter, which is anything that takes up space and has mass. Moving the slime up and down and then dropping the stretched slime on the flat surface, allows you to capture air, a gas,
which is matter, creating a slime bubble.

SCIENCE SAFETY

PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science experiment.

• ALWAYS have an adult present.
• ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any experiment.
• NEVER eat or drink anything when performing any experiment.
• REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.
