"Bouncy & Stretchy Glue" Trailer

Students discover a weird goop that acts as a solid and a liquid made from cornstarch. They compare it to rubber made from white glue and Boraxo (GAK). This relates to mixtures, solutions, chemical reactions, non-Newtonian fluids, viscosity, and elasticity. This lesson also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “Evil Mister Fred’s Glue Factory,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Easy
