SS Investigate 4 Goopy Stuff

We are experimenting with two solutions, polyvinyl alcohol in water and borax in water. When we mix them interesting things happen. Here is a link to our Scientific Method write-up.



After conducting your experiment, what 2 questions do you have?

What would happen if you put blue instead of red. What would happen if we didn't use water.

Suzanne said...

What would happen if I added more water? What would have happen if I didn't add as much borax?

Marco said...

The two questions I wrote were, what if we added alcohol to the mixtures. Then I wrote for my second question I put down, what would have happen if we also added vinegar.

kelsey said...

What would happen if we put vinegar in the stuff? Would it bubble up? What would happen if we put glue in it? Would it make it softer or harder?

Cristal said...

What I put for my questions were that what would happen if you used alcohol instead of water? The other question I wrote that what would happen if you used vinegar instead of water?

sarah said...

My hypothesis was wrong it was a physical change not a chemical .My questions are "what would happen if we left out a ingredient?" , "what
if it was a chemical change?" , and what if it was edible?".

Desirae said...

How does it dissolve ? Will it still be wet ?

Brandon said...

What if it was not squooshy? What if we added different ingredients?

Abby said...

After conducting my experiment, the two questions that I have are I wonder what would happen if I got cold water instead.Another question I have is what would happen if I put in vinegar instead of alcohol?

Miguel said...

what will happen if you put salt, or vinegar.Even with soda.

Rylan said...

What would of happened if I would of used vinegar?What would of happened if I used baking soda or salt or even white board cleaner?

Cesar said...

After we put the borax solution with the polyvinyl alcohal it turned to goo it was slopy I knew exackly that it was a chemical change because two things comdined into a knew substance.Two qustions i would ask is what if we put salt water instead or what if we used baking soda instead of polyvinyl alcohal?

Alyssa said...

What would happen if we left it out over the weekend? What are those bubbles in the goop?

Charlee said...

What would happen if you would mix pop with polyvinyl alcohol with water? What would happen if you mixed Windex with polyvinyl alcohol with water?

Carlos said...

What would happen if we used vinegar instead of polyvinyl alcohol?I think that we could've made different colors,BUT WHAT!!!What if we used baking soda instead of borax?Who knows what can happen?

Alex H said...

What are my two questions if I put vinegar on alcohol,water, and food coloring I think it would like a

Parker said...

What would happen if I added some salt or pepper in the bowl before the polyvinyl alcohol solution and the borax solution were put in the bowl together. I also wonder what would happen if the borax was mixed with egg yolks.

Sarah said...

How long does it last?
Why does the borax smell like soap?

Hannah said...

When you mixed the polyvinyl alcohol with the borax why didn't it make bubbles?

My other question is why did the goo stuff get sticky?

DANIEL said...

If I put vinegar what will happen?What if I put salt?

Mason said...

The gooey stuff looked gooey, and it looked like it had slime we used polyvinyl alcohol and borax it looked very weird and strange and it was blue. What is borax? What can polyvinyl alcohol be used for?

cole said...

1.I wonder if we used salt water instead of regular water?


2.What would happen if we used a different kind of soap instead of polyvinyl alcohol?

Smantie said...

How did you make the slime stuff ?

What wood it do if you mix regaler
soap?

sayra said...

What if we put real alcohol instead of powder alcohol and what about glue instead of borax.

Rosa said...

How did the experiment became so cool. And i do not git it what mad it so Gogoly .

Sergio said...

Do you think the reaction is a chemical or physical change?

Elizabeth said...

When I did the experiment with two solutions,"What two solutions do you think I used?" I used polyvinyl alcohol in water and borax in water.

Colton said...

What if I put water in it.
What would happen if there was no boraxo.

Dania said...

What would happen if I put baking soda in the mixture?

What would happen if I added sugar cubes to the solution?

hannah.d said...

If I took it and left it alone for three days will it get dry?If I took it when it is dry and put it in water will it get gooey again?

alison said...

1.If you did not put in borax what would happen?


2.Why does the goo turn slime?

Elizabeth said...

Why did the alcohol polyvinyl,borax and water make something gooey?

Why is it so sticky?

Marsalyn said...

we mixed a thing that i don't what it is called.and so we mixed it and
then we payed with it and yes we
used a spoon to mixed it because if
we didn't we would have the stuff
sticking.and so well i picked both
physical changes and chemical
changes.the observe to discover if
a chemical or a physical change
took place.

Leslie said...

What about I use polyvinyl and alcohol and borax?what do you think happens?I think that it's going to be Diffrent expirement
q.2 Or how about I mix it up what do you think happens? it think am doing a difreant

Jose m said...

Why do you have to use food coloring?An why do need a spoon?

Andrea said...

What happens if I put salt in the bowl? What happens if I put vinegar inside the bowl?

alex m said...

After Mrs.C put all the shuf and did all of it the class got to hold it. And then we got to have it. Some of the mom's and dad's did not lick the sthufe . But all the kids lick it.

And whut wood of hapin fie you put pop in it?

Arianda said...

kayla said...

We are experimenting with two solutions , polyviny alcohol in water and in borax water . when we mix them interesting things happen.why did we have to put we have to put polyviny in it and borax.why did we have to we have to put it on top of the cart and wait till school was finished to come get it.

lESLI said...

My 2 question's were that the goopy stuff was big and sticky.Mr.Chamberlain put hot water in the goopy stuff.

Jordan said...

dos it go drie.

will itdesove

Francisco said...

1What would happen if I put alcohol, and borax?

2What would do if I put all the Materials together?

1Aswer, it would make kind of JELLO stuff.

2Aswer, it would mass up the experiment and make a poison gas.

Hunter said...

What if you did not add food coloring?

What if you vintager instead of water.

Colton said...

What would happen when you mix the materials. Will it be a physical or chemical change.

Hi... fellow educator here, I love the scrapblog site and your pages much better than a plain old gallery. and excellent student participation. I am impressed. PS you are an example in the blog class I am taking right now.
