P5 Changing states: a slime investigation

Linking to the topics states of matter and properties and uses of substances, your slime-obsessed P5 students will love this gooey lesson, and you’ll love our mess-minimising tips! They will make their own slime, then decide if it is a solid or a liquid. This lesson will provoke a lot of scientific discussion about changing states, reversible and irreversible changes, non-Newtonian fluids and more. It’s not as straightforward as it seems!

This pack contains:

  • A lesson plan which includes the scientific explanations of solids and liquids
  • A PowerPoint presentation about different states, including instructions on how to make slime using cornflour
