This experiment is about polymers and we will make slime to create one. Polymers are formed from long chains of molecules that keep repeating themselves. Here is an example of a polymer with repeating molecules connected together.

Slime is also a polymer.

Materials:

  1. Deep bowl
  2. White glue
  3.  Shaving cream
  4. Food color
  5. Spoon
  6. Hand wash

Experiment:

In the bowl, add ½ cup glue, one spoon of shaving cream, one teaspoon hand wash, ½ cup water food color and mix well until you have slime.

Observation:

The polymer that is formed is rubbery and stretchy, if left to dry it becomes solid.

Conclusion: Slime is a polymer.
