Oobleck

My daughter and I think Oobleck is on of the coolest things ever! This activity presents an opportunity to discuss solids and liquids. When you apply pressure to oobleck by pushing on it in the bowl, it acts more like a solid. It’s difficult to push through it. But, when you grab a handful of oobleck, it oozes through your fingers as a liquid would. Scroll down below the picture to grab a printable recipe/instruction page, and then go have some fun!
