Procedural Writing – How to make Slime

We are learning how to write procedural texts in writing this week.

Yesterday, with 3B, we made slime. First we made predictions (hypothesis) as to what would happen when we added water to cornflour. Some predicted that that it would become sticky or runny and they were right!

Here is our slime making procedural text.

2. Add about a cup of water but you may need to add more.

3. Stir it around until really thick

Enjoy playing with your slime!
