Senior Infants “SLIME” experiments

Senior Infants have been busy doing some science experiments at home!  In this experiment they were making slime! It got really messy but I am told was so much fun! They were learning the difference between a fluid which is something that flows and a solid which is something hard! 

All they needed was:

  • Cornflour (Cornstarch)
  • Water
  • Large bowl and spoon
  • Food colouring (optional)

Part of the fun is getting the mix right so that you can form a solid (like a ball) that then turns into a fluid.
