TEACHING KIDS WITH SLIME
Making slime isn’t only just fun, it’s science! Encourage kids to ask questions throughout the week as each different slime is created.
- What are activators and why do they matter?
- Why is one slime stretchy and another fluffy?
- How does one slime feel compared to another?
THE SCIENCE BEHIND SLIME
Slime science starts with the best slime ingredients including the right kind of glue and the right slime activators. The best glue is a PVA (polyvinyl- acetate) washable school glue.
You have several slime activators to choose from (all in the boron family). These include saline solution, liquid starch, and borax powder, and all contain similar chemicals for making a slime substance. Cross-linking is what happens when the glue and activator are combined!
