During Science Week, our Transition girls (4-5 year olds) engaged in a video conference to learn all about slime. In the virtual excursion we connected with Ben Newcombe from Fizzics Education who talked to the girls about slime properties, the process involved with making slime and things you can do with it.
One of the wonderful things about doing a video conference with a provider like Fizzics Education is that they ensure that the excursions are interactive. We were asked to bring in materials so that the students could do the experiments while Ben talked the girls through it.
Students used the following materials:
- Food colouring
- Cups and spoons
Ben asked for a few students to volunteer and had the girls engaged in making four different slimes in 30 minutes. Suffice it to say the girls had a wonderfully 'slimey' time!
