TIMBERLINE (1st – 4th)
*Use either Basecamp or Ascent activities based on your child’s interest.
Crazy Layer Experiment:
- SUPPLIES: Clear vase, paper towels 1/4 cup of corn syrup, 1/4 cup of colored dish soap, 1/4 cup of colored water (a different color than the dish soap), 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, 1/4 cup of colored rubbing alcohol (a different color than the soap and water)
- WHAT YOU DO: The liquids will go into the vase in this order:
- Corn syrup
- Dish soap
- Vegetable oil
- Rubbing alcohol
- Pour the corn syrup and dish soap carefully into the center of the vase.
- Let the other layers slowly flow down the side of the vase. Let each layer settle before adding the next one.
- After each layer, let the kids ask questions.
- If you know the answer, you can say it if it’s appropriate at the time. And If you don’t know the answer, or if you don’t want to give anything away, it’s perfectly okay to say, “I don’t know,” or, “Let’s wait and see!”
- After each layer, tilt the vase side to side, and let the kids comment on what happens (or doesn’t happen).
- Once all liquids are in the vase, let kids ask any final questions.
- Explain that the different liquids stayed separate because some are thicker than others.
- Let the kids touch the remnants of the liquids in the separate containers so they can understand what that means.
WHAT YOU SAY: “Wasn’t this a super cool experiment? I thought for sure all the liquids would mix together, but they didn’t. I had SO MANY questions, and so did you! And that’s great! It’s good to have questions. That’s how we find out things we don’t know or understand. I want all of you to always keep going even when you have questions!”
Cookie Filler Challenge
- SUPPLIES: Oreos
- WHAT YOU DO:
- Try and create the tallest OREO by removing the cream from as many cookies as they can and adding the cream to one ultimate cookie.
- To make the challenge more difficult, try keeping one hand behind their back!
- You will have one minute to construct the ultimate OREO. Let’s see who can STICK with it and make the thickest cookie.
- Marks, get set, go!
How to make LEMONADE SLIME
- WHAT YOU NEED: plastic tablecloth, a large clear bowl, a wooden spoon, foam shaving cream, a three oz. box of lemon gelatin (not sugar free), white school glue, baking soda, saline solution, plastic cups, and wet wipes for messy fingers (Optional: yellow food coloring)
- WHAT YOU DO: Gather the ingredients for making the slime using the quantities below.
- 4 cups foam shaving cream
- 1 tablespoon lemon gelatin dissolved in 1 tablespoon warm water
- ½ cup white school glue
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons saline solution
- Add the four cups of shaving cream to the bowl.
- Add lemon gelatin and water mixture, yellow food coloring (if desired), and stir into shaving cream to incorporate.
- Add ½ cup white school glue. Gently stir to combine.
- Add ½ teaspoon baking soda to the mixture, and stir gently.
- Add two tablespoons of saline solution and whip mixture to activate the slime. Slime should start to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
- Squeeze a drop or two of saline solution on your hands, pull the slime out of the bowl, and knead until it’s smooth and can be stretched.
- Set all slime making supplies aside, out of reach of children. Give each child a lump of slime and a plastic cup. Encourage them to knead
