Slime involves chemistry! Chemistry is all about states of matter including liquids, solids, and gases. It is all about the way different materials are put together, and how they are made up of atoms and molecules. Additionally, chemistry is how these materials act under different conditions.
Slime is a non-Newtonian fluid. A non-Newtonian fluid is neither a liquid nor a solid. It can be picked up like a solid, but it also will ooze like a liquid. Slime does not have its own shape. You will notice your slime change its shape to fill whatever container it’s placed in. However, it can also be bounced like a ball because of its elasticity.
Pull the slime slowly and it flows more freely. If you pull it quickly, the slime will break off more easily because you are breaking apart the chemical bonds.
