One of our science experiments allowed students to explore with the properties of flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Students added water to each substance to see which was the stickiest. They voted on a graph for the stickiest one. The next day they were allowed to create their own recipe for paste by using 5 teaspoons of ingredients added to water. They were all successful in creating a recipe for paste. We tested our paste by gluing a bean onto an index card. These scientists were quite clever! Click the link below for photos.
