Instructional Ideas

  • Send a copy of the directions home to give families the opportunity to make slime together
  • Have several bags of already-made slime available for early finishers to play with when other tasks are complete 
  • Save ingredients for a rainy day—when pupils are required to stay inside, take out supplies needed to make your own slime 
Classroom Considerations

  • The activity was created for the gifted and talented, but all learners can take part in it 
Pros

  • Combines science and a hands-on learning experience 
  • Encourages participants to follow directions 
Cons

  • The substance is messy and difficult to remove —set up proper work areas and recommend pupils with long hair to keep it away
