SLIME Powerpoint and Worksheets! KS1/2

SLIME Powerpoint and Worksheets! KS1/2

This is an activity on how to make slime using just two key ingredients - washing up liquid and corn flour. The file contains a Powerpoint and a PDF presentation that is definitely going to catch the kids’ eyes, and two worksheets for the children to answer afterwards - because we can’t just make slime for the fun of it! I’ve tested this in my own Year 2 classroom and I HIGHLY recommend doing this activity outside - I had to speak very nicely to the cleaner after school when we did this one!
