Classroom Slime Kit NGSS

SKU #SL-300
Availability: In Stock
Qty.
Contains enough to make slime for the whole classroom.

Description

Everyone enjoys making slime!!! Slime is an easy and fun way to teach about polymers and cross linking. This slime kit contains one liter of colorless, 4% polyvinyl alcohol - initially clear, but it can easily be colored using food dyes - and enough sodium tetraborate solution to cross-link with it. A preservative has been added to avoid the growth of unwanted creatures. Investigate a cross-linked polymer. If pulled slowly, it flows; if pulled quickly, it breaks; and if rolled into a ball, it bounces.
Enough for more than 60 students to make a 1/2 ounce portion (~15 cc).

IMPORTANT COLD WEATHER SHIPPING: Our slime making chemicals can be affected if they are left out in sub-freezing temperatures. Please choose a shipping location that can accept your order when it arrives.

I used this with Vacation Bible School kids from 1st - 6th grades. They all loved it. We had plenty to go around for 1 oz. each for about 53 kids. There was enough for them to have almost double that - 2 oz. each.

This was a great activity to relate mining during our NIte @ the Museum event. The children loved being scientists mixing all the ingredients.

I have made 3 different kinds of slime and this was great but individually doesn't make much per kid. I colored mine and the kids loved it. Reacts fast!

I use this in the ETSU summer enrichment camps when the students experiment with polymers. They work with several types of poymers but this is their favorite!

The slime kit is the best product I've come across for making Oobleck in celebration of Dr. Seuss Day! Kids can't wait to use this product and create their very own slime!What kid doesn't love slime?!! Making slime has never been so easy! No more glue, no more borax, it's all right there in the kit already prepared. You just combine the two components and voila! SLIME!

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-1

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit to plan and conduct investigations to describe and classify kinds of materials by their observable properties.

5-PS1-3

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit to make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

MS-PS1-2

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit to analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

MS-PS1-5

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit as a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.

HS-PS1-7

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit to construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.

HS-PS1-4

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit to develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in the total bond energy.

HS-PS1-7

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit and then take it to a mathematical lesson to support the claim that atoms and mass are conserved during the chemical reaction.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

HS-PS1-7

While using the pre-measured chemicals in the kit, students experience an introductory lesson to plastics and polymers.

2-PS1-1
5-PS1-3

Students can use the Classroom Slime Kit while making observations of many different materials based on their properties.
