It is a well-known fact that children love to get messy and it is an important part of their development. For this very reason, the grade three teachers decided to embrace science week through a messy discovery.


We decided to embrace the slime craze by having co-operative groups conduct their own experiments to create fluffy slime.

Each co-operative group was given: glue, shaving cream, food colouring, bicarbonate soda and baby oil to carry out this experiment. The groups were given a recipe to follow and measuring equipment for this task.

It was an amazing sensory experience as they worked their fingers through the ingredients to create the slime.  They had fun experimenting with different textures and materials.

Excitement was high once the experiment was completed and they each got to take home a share of their group creation.
