Look-alike LiquidsAdd to list Details
Learners add drops of four liquids (water, alcohol, salt water, and detergent solution) to different surfaces and observe the liquids' behavior.
Clear Slime PolymerAdd to list Details
In this chemistry activity, learners use guar gum to make slime. Use this activity to introduce learners to polymers, viscosity, and colloids.
Traveling Through Different LiquidsAdd to list Details
Learners observe and record what happens when they manipulate bottles containing a liquid (water or corn syrup) and one or more objects (screw, nail, paper clip).
Exploring How Liquids BehaveAdd to list Details
Learners apply their knowledge from a previous study to identify different liquids--water, corn syrup, and vegetable oil.
Exploring LiquidsAdd to list Details
Young learners investigate and observe the properties of three liquids -- water, vegetable oil, and corn syrup. They use their senses to collect data and ask and answer questions.
Get It Write
In this activity, learners explore how pens have been engineered and re-engineered over time. Learners work as a team to develop a working pen out of everyday items.
Guar Gum SlimeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create a gelatinous slime using guar gum powder and borax. Educators can use this simple activity to introduce learners to colloids.
Water Quality and pH Levels in Aquatic EcosystemsAdd to list Details
In this fun and in depth hands-on experiment, learners test various liquid samples (distilled water, lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda mixed with water) to determine their pH levels and identify e
Density Rainbow and the Great Viscosity Race
Learners conduct two activities to investigate two properties of liquids: density and viscosity. In a clear container, learners stack 7 different liquids which will layer according to their density.
This activity provides a hands-on experience with a scale model, a relatively high viscosity fluid, and feeding behaviors.
A Slime By Any Other NameAdd to list Details
This fun video explains how to make a batch of oobleck (or slime) and why this special substance is known as a "non-Newtonian" fluid. Watch as Mr.
Let's Look at Water & the Scientific MethodAdd to list Details
This activity has learners observe water and compare it to other liquids.
Using Color to See How Liquids CombineAdd to list Details
Learners add different liquids (water, salt water, alcohol, and detergent solution) to water and observe the different ways the different liquids combine with water.
This is a highly visual demonstration that illustrates both the effects of density and chemical reactions.
GluepAdd to list Details
In this chemistry activity, learners make a slimy non-Newtonian fluid called "Gluep." Use this activity to introduce learners to polymers and viscosity.
Suminagashi: Floating Ink Paper Marbling
In this activity, learners try to float ink on the surface of water to create a pattern and then capture it with absorbent paper.
In this activity, learners test different food items by timing how long it takes each liquid to slide from the top of a ramp to the bottom.
Developing Tests to Distinguish Between Similar-Looking UnknownsAdd to list Details
Learners identify an unknown liquid by comparing its behavior to known liquids. Learners drop liquids onto different surfaces and see how the liquids behave.
Floating and Falling Flows
Learners create beautiful fluid motion. They explore fluid dynamics, surface tension, solubility, and buoyancy while mixing liquids together.
