About This Lesson

Make Ooblek dance! First, make Ooblek, a special substance known as a non-Newtonian fluid, with corn starch and water. Then, watch the Ooblek come "alive" by hooking up a tone generator to a amplifier and placing a tray of Ooblek on top of the amplifier. The sound from the tone generator creates vibrations, which cause the Oobleck to stiffen and form tendrils. Add food coloring and observe what happens! In this activity guide and video. Aligned with Common Core Standards: L.3.4 , L.4.4 , L.5.4
