⁣⁣Lesson Plan: DIY BUBBLY Slime: Learn How to Make Your Own Fun and Fluffy Bubble-Popping Slime!

Grade Level: 6-8

Subject: Science/Chemistry

Objective: Students will explore the science behind slime-making and learn about the chemical reactions involved in creating bubbly slime. They will also develop their fine motor skills and creativity through hands-on experimentation.

Materials Needed:
- Clear glue
- Baking soda
- Contact lens solution (containing boric acid)
- Water
- Mixing bowls and spoons
- Food coloring (optional)
- Glitter or small beads (optional)


1. Introduction (10 minutes):
- Begin the lesson by discussing the properties of slime and its popularity as a sensory toy.
- Ask students if they have ever made slime before and what they know about the science behind it.

2. Background Research (15 minutes):
- Provide students with a brief overview of the chemical reactions involved in slime-making.
- Explain the role of boric acid in the contact lens solution as a cross-linking agent that binds the glue molecules together.

3. Safety Precautions (5 minutes):
- Discuss safety guidelines with students, such as avoiding ingestion or contact with eyes.
- Emphasize the importance of following instructions and using materials responsibly.

4. Hands-on Experimentation: Making Bubbly Slime (45 minutes):
- Instruct students to gather their materials and set up their workstations.
- Demonstrate the step-by-step process of making bubbly slime:
a. Pour 1 cup of clear glue into a mixing bowl.
b. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and mix well.
c. Add a few drops of food coloring and glitter/beads (optional) for visual appeal.
d. Slowly add contact lens solution (containing boric acid) while stirring continuously until the slime forms and no longer sticks to the bowl.
e. Knead and stretch the slime to achieve desired consistency.
f. Encourage students to experiment with different amounts of ingredients to observe the effects on the slime's texture and bubble-popping properties.

5. Exploration and Observation (15 minutes):
- Allow students to explore and play with their slime creations.
- Instruct them to observe the texture, stretchiness, and ability to form bubbles.
- Encourage them to record their observations and share their findings with the class.

6. Reflection and Discussion (15 minutes):
- Facilitate a class discussion on the chemical reactions that occurred during the slime-making process.
- Ask students to explain their observations and the role of each ingredient in the reaction.
- Discuss the importance of following instructions and the impact of varying ingredient amounts on the slime's properties.

7. Creative Extensions (30 minutes):
- Encourage students to personalize their slime by adding additional elements such as glitter, small beads, or scents.
- Instruct them to document their creative additions and describe the changes in the slime's characteristics.

8. Conclusion (5 minutes):
- Conclude the lesson by emphasizing the connection between science and everyday activities like slime-making.
- Encourage students to continue exploring the science behind various materials and reactions.

Common Core Labels Correlations:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.WHST.6-8.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information.
