Mrs. Kruger’s 3rd Grade class had a lesson on Oobleck - “a suspension of cornstarch and water that can behave like a solid or a liquid depending on how much pressure you apply”. They made predictions about what will happen when the ingredients are mixed, took notes on their discoveries while able to feel the Oobleck, and experimented with various objects to see if they would float or sink in the Oobleck. The students had a lot of fun with this lesson! 🥽🦠
