Making and Playing With, "Oobleck," While Learning About Texture

Laparade Early Learning and Training Center, the classroom teacher (Ms. Jonae) made the uniquely textured substance known as, "Oobleck." The name is inspired by a Dr. Suess book about a slimly green substance that isn't quite solid or liquid and given that name. The class read, "Bartholomew and the Oobleck," then they made their own--which you can do too!

Materials needed to make Oobleck

To make Oobleck you will need the following:

*1 cup of water

*1-2 cups of cornstarch

*A bowl or tub for mixing

*Food coloring (if you want to add it)

How to make Oobleck

Follow these steps to make your own Oobleck:

1. Pour one cup of corn starch into your mixing bowl/tub. Feel how it is a dry powder.

2. Pour the cup of water on the cornstarch, mixing it in slowly as you pour. Keep adding more water until the mixture becomes thick (and hardens when you tap on it). Add more cornstarch if it gets too runny, and keep adding in more water if it becomes too thick.

3. Add your food coloring if you'd like to put some in the Oobleck.

4. Play with your Oobleck! Try and pick some up, squeeze it, and otherwise observe how it is not quite liquid but also clearly different than a solid.
