This week, our preschoolers made slime! We started out by listing the ingredients on chart paper. The students then helped add the ingredients and stirred the mixture. This was an excellent way to bring math into a real life experience. The students were introduced to different measuring cups and spoons and were given time to explore. Each student was asked to stir for five seconds — all students worked together to count the number of stirs. When the students finished the slime, some chose to play and create with it, while others chose to enjoy different work time choices.
