As part of our Inquiry topic “Solids, Liquids and Gases” today all the Grade 1 students made slime. We mixed cornflour, water and food colouring together. The students saw that the water mixed with the cornflour made a substance that was both a solid and a liquid depending on how much pressure they applied with their fingers. After the students undertook this experiment they were able to link this to their literacy lesson where they had to write up the experiment as a procedural text. We look forward to doing more experiments and learning about how solids, liquids and gases react in the coming weeks.
