Sticky, Yucky Oobleck!

Yesterday we started our Change unit by becoming real live scientists and investigating a very strange 'alien like ' substance called "Oobleck".

Oobleck is a non-newtonian fluid. That is, it acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands. Make enough Oobleck and you can even walk on it!- Which some of us did!!

Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck where a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom.
