Today in Mr. Monroe’s class the students made gloop, a substance like putty, out of glue and food coloring. The steps involved mixing borax with water, then mix four ounces of glue with water until the glue is runny. Then combine the glue in the water with the borax. The glue mixed with the borax causes a chemical reaction. Mix the two substances together for five minutes, add four drops of food coloring, and put the gloop in a plastic bag and shake the bag until the color is visible. It was a fun lab.
