⁣⁣Lesson Plan: How to Make Slime Without Glue: Easy and Fun Slime Recipes for Kids!

Grade Level: 3-5

Subject: Science/Crafts

Objective: Students will learn and apply scientific concepts while creating slime without using glue.

Materials Needed:
- Cornstarch
- Water
- Optional: Food coloring, glitter, small toys, or other add-ins for customization
- Mixing bowls
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Spatulas or spoons for stirring
- Disposable gloves or hand sanitizers for cleanliness
- Paper towels for cleanup


1. Introduction (10 minutes):
- Engage students in a discussion about different types of slime and the materials commonly used to make it.
- Introduce the idea of making slime without glue as an alternative method.

2. Exploring Non-Newtonian Fluids (15 minutes):
- Explain the concept of non-Newtonian fluids, such as slime, that have properties of both liquids and solids.
- Discuss how the ratio of ingredients affects the consistency and texture of the slime.

3. Making Cornstarch Slime (30 minutes):
- Demonstrate the process of making cornstarch slime to the students.
- Instruct students to measure 1 part water and 2 parts cornstarch using the measuring cups and spoons.
- Guide them in gradually adding the water to the cornstarch while stirring until a slime-like consistency is formed.
- Optional: Encourage students to add food coloring, glitter, or small toys to customize their slime.

4. Hands-on Exploration (20 minutes):
- Provide each student with a small portion of the cornstarch slime.
- Instruct students to touch, squeeze, and play with the slime, observing its unique properties and texture.
- Encourage them to experiment with different ways of interacting with the slime, such as rolling it into a ball, stretching it, or letting it ooze through their fingers.

5. Scientific Reflection (15 minutes):
- Facilitate a discussion on the scientific concepts observed during the slime-making and exploration process.
- Guide students in describing the properties of the cornstarch slime, emphasizing its non-Newtonian behavior and its ability to change from a solid to a liquid-like substance under pressure.

6. Clean-up and Conclusion (10 minutes):
- Instruct students to clean their hands with disposable gloves or hand sanitizers.
- Assist in the clean-up process, providing paper towels for any spills or messes.
- Conclude the lesson by discussing the importance of hands-on exploration and scientific observation in understanding the properties of different materials.

Common Core Labels Correlations:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.3-5.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure.
- CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
