Unformatted text preview: Intro:​ ​So​ ​do​ ​any​ ​of​ ​you​ ​guys​ ​know​ ​an​ ​object​ ​that​ ​can​ ​ooze​ ​between​ ​your​ ​fingers​ ​when​ ​you​ ​pick​ ​it​ ​up,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​quite​ ​stick​ ​to your​ ​skin?​ ​Like​ ​at​ ​times,​ ​it​ ​can​ ​act​ ​like​ ​a​ ​liquid,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​can​ ​also​ ​appear​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​solid.​ ​I​ ​know.​ ​You​ ​guys​ ​are​ ​probably​ ​so​ ​confused​ ​on what​ ​it​ ​could​ ​be.​ ​But​ ​basically,​ ​the​ ​substance​ ​I​ ​am​ ​talking​ ​about​ ​is​ ​slime​ ​also​ ​known​ ​as​ ​silly​ ​putty.​ ​I’m​ ​pretty​ ​sure​ ​most​ ​of​ ​you​ ​have made​ ​slime​ ​before,​ ​but​ ​if​ ​not,​ ​you​ ​guys​ ​definitely​ ​know​ ​what​ ​slime​ ​is.​ ​It’s​ ​a​ ​popular​ ​arts​ ​and​ ​craft​ ​activity​ ​any​ ​person​ ​can​ ​do.​ ​Slime can​ ​provide​ ​fun​ ​for​ ​all​ ​ages​ ​and​ ​can​ ​act​ ​as​ ​a​ ​great​ ​stress​ ​reliever.​ ​About​ ​3​ ​years​ ​ago,​ ​I​ ​made​ ​slime​ ​in​ ​my​ ​chemistry​ ​class​ ​as​ ​a​ ​lab.​ ​For the​ ​people​ ​who​ ​took​ ​chemistry,​ ​you​ ​guys​ ​probably​ ​know​ ​what​ ​I​ ​am​ ​talking​ ​about,​ ​but​ ​for​ ​the​ ​people​ ​who​ ​haven’t,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​soon​ ​be able​ ​to​ ​experience​ ​a​ ​fun​ ​lab​ ​like​ ​making​ ​slime.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​extremely​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​make​ ​ ​because​ ​there​ ​are​ ​not​ ​that​ ​many​ ​ingredients​ ​and materials​ ​needed.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​probably​ ​find​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​things​ ​needed​ ​in​ ​your​ ​house​ ​and​ ​there​ ​are​ ​no​ ​harmful​ ​chemicals​ ​or​ ​unhealthy ingredients​ ​involved.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​presentation,​ ​I​ ​will​ ​explain​ ​two​ ​basic​ ​things,​ ​which​ ​includes​ ​showing​ ​all​ ​the​ ​materials​ ​and​ ​ingredients needed,​ ​and​ ​how​ ​we​ ​can​ ​mix​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ingredients​ ​together​ ​to​ ​create​ ​slime! OK!​ ​So​ ​let​ ​me​ ​start​ ​off​ ​by​ ​showing​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​materials​ ​and​ ​ingredients​ ​that​ ​we​ ​will​ ​be​ ​using​ ​to​ ​create​ ​slime!​ ​The​ ​best​ ​part​ ​of​ ​this​ ​is that​ ​you​ ​only​ ​need​ ​4​ ​ingredients! The​ ​ingredients​ ​you​ ​need​ ​are -Elmer’s​ ​glue​ ​(I​ ​will​ ​be​ ​using​ ​Elmer’s​ ​glue​ ​today,​ ​but​ ​any​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​white​ ​craft​ ​glue​ ​will​ ​work.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​find​ ​glue​ ​at​ ​your​ ​local​ ​craft store​ ​or​ ​grocery​ ​store) -Borax​ ​(For​ ​those​ ​of​ ​you​ ​who​ ​don’t​ ​know​ ​what​ ​borax​ ​is,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​a​ ​common​ ​household​ ​and​ ​commercial​ ​chemical​ ​that​ ​is​ ​a​ ​detergent​ ​and can​ ​be​ ​found​ ​in​ ​cosmetics.​ ​Borax​ ​is​ ​available​ ​at​ ​most​ ​grocery​ ​stores​ ​in​ ​the​ ​household​ ​items​ ​aisle) -Water​ ​(You​ ​can​ ​find​ ​water​ ​anywhere) -Food​ ​coloring​ ​(So,​ ​food​ ​coloring​ ​is​ ​optional,​ ​but​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​make​ ​your​ ​slime​ ​look​ ​pretty,​ ​it’s​ ​necessary!​ ​You​ ​can​ ​find​ ​food coloring​ ​at​ ​the​ ​nearest​ ​grocery​ ​store) The​ ​supplies​ ​you​ ​need​ ​are -2​ ​bowls -a​ ​measuring​ ​cup -plastic​ ​spoon So​ ​after​ ​gathering​ ​all​ ​the​ ​ingredients​ ​and​ ​supplies,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​move​ ​on​ ​to​ ​the​ ​fun​ ​part​ ​which​ ​is​ ​mixing​ ​all​ ​the​ ​ingredients​ ​together. Steps: 1. Use​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​bowls​ ​and​ ​pour​ ​in​ ​½​ ​cup​ ​of​ ​water​ ​(you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​measure​ ​precisely​ ​because​ ​if​ ​the measurement​ ​is​ ​off,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​end​ ​up​ ​having​ ​slime​ ​that​ ​is​ ​too​ ​wet​ ​or​ ​too​ ​hard)​ ​and​ ​1​ ​teaspoon​ ​of​ ​Borax​ ​(like​ ​the​ ​water,​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​measure​ ​precisely)​ ​So​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​stir​ ​the​ ​ingredients​ ​together​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​it​ ​to​ ​the​ ​side. 2. Grab​ ​the​ ​other​ ​bowl​ ​and​ ​pour​ ​out​ ​all​ ​the​ ​glue​ ​inside​ ​(I​ ​am​ ​using​ ​a​ ​4​ ​oz​ ​Elmer’s​ ​glue​ ​bottle,​ ​but​ ​like​ ​I​ ​said​ ​earlier,​ ​you​ ​can use​ ​type​ ​of​ ​white​ ​craft​ ​glue​ ​you​ ​want)​ ​and​ ​then​ ​you​ ​are​ ​going​ ​to​ ​pour​ ​in​ ​½​ ​cup​ ​of​ ​water​ ​as​ ​well………..So​ ​I​ ​have​ ​red​ ​food​ ​coloring today.​ ​Like​ ​I​ ​said​ ​earlier,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​not​ ​completely​ ​necessary,​ ​but​ ​I​ ​want​ ​my​ ​slime​ ​to​ ​look​ ​pretty​ ​so​ ​I​ ​will​ ​be​ ​using​ ​it.​ ​I​ ​recommend​ ​using​ ​8 drops,​ ​but​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​lighter​ ​color,​ ​then​ ​I​ ​would​ ​use​ ​less​ ​than​ ​8​ ​and​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​darker​ ​color,​ ​then​ ​use​ ​more than​ ​8.​ ​You​ ​then​ ​are​ ​going​ ​to​ ​stir​ ​until​ ​the​ ​color​ ​is​ ​blended. 3. So​ ​you​ ​are​ ​going​ ​to​ ​pour​ ​the​ ​contents​ ​in​ ​the​ ​first​ ​bowl​ ​into​ ​the​ ​second​ ​bowl​ ​and​ ​stir​ ​the​ ​slime​ ​with​ ​your​ ​spoon.​ ​Make​ ​sure you​ ​are​ ​very​ ​careful​ ​or​ ​else​ ​you​ ​will​ ​end​ ​up​ ​with​ ​a​ ​huge​ ​mess.​ ​After​ ​stirring​ ​for​ ​a​ ​while,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​start​ ​to​ ​notice​ ​that​ ​the​ ​slime​ ​will​ ​be hard​ ​to​ ​stir​ ​with​ ​the​ ​spoon,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​stir​ ​with​ ​your​ ​hands. 4. This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​fun​ ​part​ ​in​ ​my​ ​opinion.​ ​You​ ​are​ ​going​ ​to​ ​remove​ ​all​ ​the​ ​slime​ ​from​ ​your​ ​bowl​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​excess​ ​liquid​ ​in​ ​the bowl.​ ​You​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​want​ ​to​ ​try​ ​to​ ​squeeze​ ​all​ ​the​ ​liquid​ ​out​ ​of​ ​the​ ​slime. 5. There​ ​you​ ​have​ ​it.​ ​You​ ​made​ ​slime! So,​ ​now​ ​that​ ​you​ ​know​ ​how​ ​to​ ​make​ ​slime,​ ​let​ ​me​ ​quickly​ ​wrap​ ​this​ ​up​ ​by​ ​going​ ​over​ ​a​ ​few​ ​final​ ​things. Today,​ ​I​ ​showed​ ​you​ ​what ​materials​ ​and​ ​ingredients​ ​you​ ​will​ ​need​ ​and​ ​how​ ​to​ ​mix​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ingredients​ ​together​ ​to​ ​create​ ​slime!​ ​An interesting​ ​fact​ ​about​ ​slime​ ​is​ ​that​ ​is​ ​has​ ​been​ ​used​ ​for​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​health​ ​purposes.​ ​Many​ ​therapists​ ​recommend​ ​it​ ​as​ ​a​ ​great stress-relieving​ ​tool​ ​for​ ​people​ ​who​ ​are​ ​prone​ ​to​ ​always​ ​fidgeting​ ​or​ ​suffering​ ​from​ ​anxiety.​ ​But​ ​honestly,​ ​slime​ ​is​ ​great​ ​for​ ​all​ ​ages and​ ​everyone​ ​likes​ ​it. ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
