What Are We Learning About?

MATH: Repeated subtraction/division


SCIENCE: Over the next few weeks, students will be working as chemical engineers to answer the question: Is it possible to improve the process for making high-quality play dough? Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:

  • gathering and analyzing data about how play dough materials interact when mixed

  • designing tests and establishing criteria to measure how well a play dough process produces a desired result

  • improving a play dough process by creating a sample of play dough


Because science and engineering projects are hands-on, materials are often needed. Several materials necessary for this unit are listed below, and if you have any of these materials available, your donation would be greatly appreciated.

20 oz. paper or plastic bowls
