Students use short-chain polymers and borate ions to produce cross-linked polymers in the lab. For this cross-linked polymer lesson plan, students produce polyvinyl acetate slime and polyvinyl alcohol slime and test their physical properties. Students answer 6 questions about their investigation results and about cross-linked polymers.
