Oobleck

The Year 4 and 5 students have been inquiring into the idea that ‘Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways’. As part of our inquiry students had the chance to make and explore Oobleck, a non-Newtonian fluid that shows properties of both a solid and a liquid at room temperature. Students have been able to identify the properties that would make Oobleck a solid and those which would make it a liquid and had a lot of fun in the process.
