Getting Silly with Putty

Introduce polymers to your 4th - 8th graders for the first time. Chemists mix glue with a Borax solution to create a cross-linked polymer and compare its properties to the properties of the original materials. This is a classic activity for teaching polymers to this age group, but the teacher's notes and student activity sheets will really help keep everyone focused.

Lesson Planet has helped me with my lesson plans as a student teacher. There are so many creative lesson plans available which is a huge help to someone like me who has very little experience at this point in time and I am in need of ideas and activities to help get me started in the classroom.
