Activity: Make Silly Putty (Science)

Purpose: To see how ingredients bind together. Also, to observe and participate in the creation of a toy: Silly Putty.

Materials Needed:
  • 2 Tablespoons of white glue, such as Elmer's Glue
  • 2 Tablespoons of water
  • 2 teaspoons of borax (Caution: Adults only should handle the borax.)
  • A couple drops of food coloring
Place the white glue and water in a bowl and stir to blend. Add a couple drops of food coloring and stir in. Then have an adult add the borax and stir again. The mixture will begin to congeal.

Before playing with the putty, place it in a zip-lock style bag. Knead the putty through the bag to help wear off any excess food coloring. The putty can also be wiped clean with a damp disposable towel. After playing with the putty, place it in a clean zip-lock plastic bag to store.




Activity: World Toss (Geography / Social Studies)

Purpose: To learn about the continents, countries, cities, oceans, and rivers of the world.

Materials Needed:
  • Inflatable globe
  • World atlas, world map, encyclopedia, or Internet
  • Blank maps of the world, continents, or countries (or blank paper)
  • Optional: Books such as Usborne Geography or DK Geography of the World, or similar illustrated geography book
Toss the inflated globe back and forth. Have each person who catches the globe randomly point their finger at a spot on the globe.

Have that person name the place their finger has found, such as a country, city, river, bay, ocean. Have them tell something that they already know about that place.

Then have the person look up something new about that country, city, river, bay, or ocean, and discuss that. Have the person label the area on a blank map. (Or trace a map of the region onto a piece of paper, then label the area they found and discussed.)

Now toss the inflated globe to the next person, and continue on, learning more about different areas of the world.
