Oobleck!

This afternoon Room 9 was lucky enough to make "oobleck" with Nicky!

Oobleck is a strange kind of solid/liquid.
When you touch it, it feels hard like a solid. When you press your finger in it is squishy like a liquid.
Sam thought it was a bit like "sinking sand". You can pick up oobleck and it becomes drippy like a liquid!
The only ingredients we used to make it was cornflour, water and green food colouring.

Here are some photos and comments from Room 9:

Hi there Room Nine,
What an awesome activity you have been doing! Is this "oobleck" also known as home-made "slime"? I think I have heard about this funny stuff before, but I am sure my Room 4 kidz will know ... then again maybe not! So I will have to share your cool photos with them!
Also something else that had me wondering ..... "Was it 'Inside-Out T-shirt Day' today? My kidz will be so disappointed that they missed it! (giggle, giggle!). I will have to mark it down on the calendar so that we don't miss it next year! Keep up the fantastic work, Room Nine and Teachers!
