I've posted about how wonderful flubber is before.
Flubber is a staple in our classroom.
Lately, we've been experimenting with it.
I've read about putting flubber in a strainer in the Ooey Gooey books, and saw it in action here at Casa Marias Creative Learning Zone.
All I really needed was a strainer to get the ball rolling, and I found a really nifty one with handles!
|I used a sturdy string tied on each side of it to hang it. I'm not tall enough to reach the ceiling, even standing on a chair, so I hung it on our cubby hooks.|
|It takes a while before anything interesting happens, but after about twenty minutes or so, they started noticing the flubber in a strainer.|
|It was REALLY hard for them not to touch it, but I wanted them to see the full effect of dripping flubber before playing with it.|
|...And then they could touch it! :)|
|Chris experiments with touching the flubber with his nose...and makes a discovery. |
"I can see through it!"
|It has an interesting effect. The flubber takes on the properties of a liquid in SLOOOOW motion. I love the little rain drops.|
|The display began attracting attention during snack time.|
|After they finished eating, they couldn't resist the flubber table. As the flubber dripped and broke, they loved to catch it and use it for play.|
|The glass stones add a special element to play.|
Here was the view looking up.
