Incridience/Materials for Slime:
- Elmer's white glue or Elmer's school glue gel
- Borax (find in the laundry detergent aisle of the store)
- Two bowls
- Food coloring (optional)
THIS IS A VISUAL OF THE SUBJECT "SLIME"
Step 1. In first bowl put 1/2 cup of Elmer's glue and 1/2 cup water. Add food coloring (optional).
Step 2. In the second bowl put 1 teaspoon of Borax with 1 cup of water until the borax is dissolved.
Step 3. Add the glue mixture to the borax solution, and stir slowly.
Step 4.The slime will begin to form, stir until you can't no more. Then dig in and knead it with your hands until it gets less sticky. (It will create a mess, but don't worry it will go away) If you have any leftover water in the bowl, just pour it out.
THIS IS A FINNISHED VERTION OF SLIME!
Relevant Chemistry Concept:
"What is a chemical change in this experiment?" The glue has an ingredient called polyvinyl. (which is a liquid polymer) The borax and the polyvinyl (polymer) when mix together the reaction causes a flexible polymer.“What is an acid in the experiment?” An acid in the experiment is the borax, it's technically a base, but it is really weak, so people might consider it as a acid, specially when the borax is from a different marketing company. My experiment show both this concepts, by how the slime will turn out at the end and how borax can affect the results in my experiment.
In the experiment the students and instructors will expect a full length demonstration of the subject "Slime." It will be within five minutes or less. It will have the description of the subject such as the reaction (the change), what exothermic is created, and what acids are in the project. It will have the materials enlisted and the procedure of the subject. As well as a well done procedure and experiment.
