In this ooey, gooey, and fun cross-curricular (reading and science) class, your child will listen to an engaging story by Dr. Seuss called "Bartholomew and the Oobleck." Afterwards, students will make some oobleck and learn the science behind it. What is oobleck, you ask? Oobleck is what is known as a non-Newtonian fluid. It has properties of both a liquid and a solid. The closest comparison is slime, though they are not quite the same. In teaching this class, I will briefly cover story...
in this class students will learn: ✦ properties of liquids ✦ properties of solids ✦ states of matter ✦ story elements ✦ properties of a non-Newtonian fluid
I am a certified, veteran teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience. Though I have spent my career teaching all subjects to elementary students, I have a passion for science. I love sharing my passion and knowledge with young learners; hopefully I am able to inspire their love of science as well.
✦ A large bowl or other container for mixing and preparing the oobleck ✦ 2 cups of cornstarch ✦ 1 cup of water ✦ 3 drops of food coloring (optional) ✦ newspapers, a towel, or a tablecloth to keep your table clean (optional)
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I have another version of this course for 3-6 year olds. That course has very similar content, but is broken into two days to accommodate the shorter attention span of younger learners. If your child is 5 or 6, you can choose which version your child attends because there is some overlap in the age range between the two versions. You know your child best. Feel free to enroll in the option that you feel best fits your learner. Please ensure that if your child is 5 or 6 that he or she can remain focused and attentive for the entire 55 minutes should you decide to select this one day, 55 minute option.
