"Corn Starch Monsters" Trailer

Students mix corn starch and water and come up with a material that behaves like a solid and a liquid at the same time. Then they watch it vibrate and turn into a monster! This relates to mixtures, solids and liquids, non-Newtonian fluids, and vibrations. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “Jack & Jill and the Corn Starch Lake,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Hard
