⁣⁣Lesson Plan: Ready for a Fun Experiment? Waffle Iron vs Fluffy Slime: What Happens When You Combine Them?

Grade Level: 4-6

Subject: Science/Chemistry

Objective: Students will conduct an experiment to observe the effects of heat on fluffy slime when exposed to a waffle iron, while learning about the concepts of thermal energy and chemical changes.

Materials Needed:
- Fluffy slime (pre-made or create using a basic slime recipe)
- Waffle iron
- Parchment paper or aluminum foil
- Tongs or heat-resistant gloves
- Thermometer
- Safety goggles
- Optional: Additional materials for variations (food coloring, glitter, etc.)


1. Introduction (10 minutes):
- Engage students by discussing the concept of heat and its effects on different materials.
- Introduce the experiment of exposing fluffy slime to a waffle iron and ask students to predict what might happen.

2. Safety Precautions (5 minutes):
- Discuss safety precautions, such as wearing safety goggles, using tongs or heat-resistant gloves when handling the waffle iron, and avoiding contact with eyes or skin.

3. Step-by-Step Instructions (20 minutes):
- Provide students with step-by-step instructions for conducting the experiment:

a) Prepare the waffle iron by preheating it to a specific temperature (e.g., 200°F) and lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
b) Take a small amount of fluffy slime and place it on the lined waffle iron.
c) Close the waffle iron and hold it down gently for a few seconds.
d) Open the waffle iron and observe any changes in the slime's texture, color, or other properties.
e) Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the waffle iron after each trial.
f) Repeat the process with variations, such as adding food coloring or glitter to the slime, or testing different temperature settings.

4. Observations and Data Collection (15 minutes):
- Have students record their observations of the slime before and after exposure to the waffle iron.
- Encourage them to note any changes in texture, color, or other properties.
- Discuss the importance of accurate data collection and measurement in scientific experiments.

5. Clean-up and Reflection (10 minutes):
- Instruct students to clean up their work areas and dispose of any leftover materials properly.
- Facilitate a discussion on the observations and data collected during the experiment.
- Have students reflect on the effects of heat on the fluffy slime and connect their observations to the concepts of thermal energy and chemical changes.

Common Core Labels Correlations:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.4-5.3: Follow a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.6.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information clearly.
