⁣⁣Lesson Plan: Curious about DIY Fluffy Slime Without Glue? Learn How to Make It with Common Household Ingredients!

Grade Level: 6-8

Subject: Science/Chemistry

Objective: Students will explore alternative methods of creating fluffy slime without the use of glue, while learning about chemical reactions and the properties of polymers.

Materials Needed:
- Cornstarch
- Shaving cream
- Liquid dish soap
- Measuring cups
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing utensil
- Food coloring (optional)


1. Introduction (10 minutes):
- Engage students by discussing the properties of polymers and their applications in everyday life.
- Introduce the concept of fluffy slime and explain that students will be creating their own without using glue.

2. Safety Precautions (5 minutes):
- Discuss safety precautions, such as avoiding contact with eyes, washing hands after handling the slime, and not ingesting it.

3. Step-by-Step Instructions (20 minutes):
- Provide students with step-by-step instructions on how to make fluffy slime without glue:
a) Measure 1 cup of cornstarch and pour it into a mixing bowl.
b) Gradually add shaving cream to the cornstarch while stirring continuously. Add enough shaving cream until the mixture forms a moldable consistency.
c) Add a few drops of liquid dish soap to the mixture and continue stirring.
d) Optional: Add a few drops of food coloring to achieve the desired color.
e) Once the slime starts to come together, use your hands to knead and mix it until it reaches a fluffy and stretchy consistency.

4. Observations and Experiments (15 minutes):
- Allow students to observe and play with their fluffy slime without glue.
- Encourage them to describe its texture, stretchiness, and other characteristics.
- Ask students to brainstorm and conduct experiments to test the effects of adding more or less shaving cream or dish soap, or altering other ingredients.

5. Clean-up and Reflection (10 minutes):
- Instruct students to clean up their work areas and properly dispose of any leftover materials.
- Facilitate a discussion on the scientific process and the role of experimentation in understanding the properties of materials.
- Have students reflect on their experience making fluffy slime without glue and the concepts they learned about chemical reactions and polymers.

Common Core Labels Correlations:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.7.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information clearly.
