The Mystery of Suspensions

The Concept: The children will learn that suspensions have qualities of both liquids and solids and appear to be in a state between the two. Suspensions are thick; pour slowly; are similar to solids that appear to ooze; and can be compared to substances such as oobleck, GAK, or Silly Putty. Students will compare and contrast, mix, and measure as they explore a suspension.
