Oobleck

Is it a solid? Is it a liquid?
Joseph and Libby have been sitting at the kitchen table for an hour investigating the properties of Oobleck (a very secret recipe involving cornstarch and water ;)). Joseph has decided that Oobleck will deserve an entire chapter in his book.
They are absolutely fascinated that a substance could exhibit the properties of both a solid and a liquid.
Caroline was grossed out really quickly and went to play on the computer.
The girls read Bartholomew and the Oobleck as part of their studies on Solids, Liquids and Gases.

Have you seen The Big Bang Theory (Mondays CBS) they put saran wrap over a speaker and then put cornstarch and water on it and watched it dance around to the music. It was pretty neat.
