Even if you've already "played with" or heard of this mysterious substance before, the updated Oobleck guide presents a coherent unit to start your students' school year with: 
  • Authentic Inquiry in a team lab investigation of a most mysterious substance that both begs and eludes description 
  • Scientific Communication during a convention/ debate over the physical properties of oobleck
  • Engineering Challenge to design a robotic explorer for an ocean of oobleck.


All materials are safe and inexpensive (they may already be in your kitchen).
