  2. Identify Related Phenomena (Write-Pair-Share)– Think of other times when matter behaves in unexpected ways. Write down on ISN p.34 a brief description of other examples of substances changing form. Try to come up with ones that make you wonder why/how it happened. Then write down questions you have about the phenomenon.
  3. Scientists Circle- As a class, compare the similarities and differences in explanations (models) about what is happening when the oobleck is a solid and when it is a liquid. What are other examples of when you have experienced something acting as both a solid or liquid or something else?
