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.
- Deep bowl
- White glue
- Shaving cream
- Food color
- Hand wash
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.
The polymer that is formed is rubbery and stretchy, if left to dry it becomes solid.
Conclusion: Slime is a polymer.
