I called myself doing this experiement with corn starch and water. It was supposed to be all fantastic. it would turn into a solid and everything. It was going to be great and even help heal ailing sea squirrels. That sound you heard was the super big thud of it not working like it was supposed to and me having to keep telling my class to stir this mess! Just a big huge bowl of something I'm going to have to find away to get rid of. YUCK!
But I had a back up project, thank God. And I tried it at home first and it works better than I expected. I'm not sure about the sea squirrels, but my kids will get a lot from it. Enjoy
