    Oobleck activities
    By KEH

    I always read the book, "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" to my class. I then have them draw a picture of the oobleck and write a sentence about the picture. We then make oobleck. They really seem to enjoy these activities. Here's the recipe I use for oobleck:

    Materials Needed

    1 1/2 C. Corn Starch

    1 C. Water

    Green Food Color (optional)
    Mix the ingredients and allow children to play with the mixture. When"pushed" together, the mixture will appear dry and solid; as children let go of the mixture, it flows like a smooth liquid.

    I usually use smaller amounts because I have my kids mix their own in Ziploc bags. This makes less of a mess. I do the measuring and they mix it themselves in the Ziploc baggies.

    I hope this helps!
