Thermochromic Slime

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 7 pages | Grades: 1 - 3

A set of instructions and posters to create an experiment with thermochromic slime.

This teaching resource is designed to help students create thermochromic slime.

Adding thermochromic pigment to slime gives it the ability to change color when exposed to hot and cold temperatures.

This hands-on materials resource includes:

  • an instructional comic for how to make thermochromic slime
  • activity cards for suggested experiment stations
  • an observation worksheet for student engagement.

Use the editable word documents to include your own science experiment activity ideas.

Note: If unable to acquire thermochromic pigment or borax locally, they are easily obtainable online. Check the availability in your area before planning this activity.
