 (Note: Sometimes there are glitches in the software whereby clicking on the above link doesn't actually take you to the link. I find it works to open the webquest document and click on the link on that page. I've also found sometimes when I double click it or highlight the address it takes me there. There's always the old fashioned way of typing the address in the address bar.)

Slime
 
Materials:
1 tsp liquid starch
1 tsp white liquid glue
food coloring (any color)
12-inch square sheet of waxed paper
spoon (optional)
 

Using the spoon or your fingers, mix the starch, glue and a drop of food coloring in the center of the waxed paper. Keep stirring until the materials form a substance that begins to separate from the waxed paper. (We found that once it started to separate from the paper and form a glob it would become slime faster if we picked it up and rolled it in a ball in the palm of our hands.)
