Investigating Matter, Solid or Liquid: Barthlomew and the Oobleck part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
The students will be able to define solids and liquids from their prior knowledge. The students will be able to verbalize the differences between solids and liquids? Observe, communicate and question when things aren't what they appear to be. Is Oobleck a solid or liquid? The answer is that it is both. Have the students come up with their own answers and to communicate their findings. The students will understand the difference between a non-Newtonian fluid and a liquid or a solid.
