Description

Slime is more fun when it's colorful. Now you can choose pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple! This slime kit contains one liter of colored, 4% polyvinyl alcohol and enough sodium tetraborate solution to cross-link with it. Slime is an easy and fun way to teach about polymers and cross linking. 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.

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 this Slime Kit to plan and conduct investigations to describe and classify kinds of materials by their observable properties.

5-PS1-3

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

MS-PS1-2

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