Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book “Bartholomew and the Oobleck,” in which a gooey green substance, Oobleck, falls from the sky and wreaks havoc.
Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid. That is, it acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. Oobleck is fun to squish.
We will make and color our own Oobleck in tubs to play with and walk on. We will make a mess.
Note to self: Bring dropcloth
