Tuesday's Tip for Teachers: Need a creative class management tool that's a bit different? When the class works well together, they get a piece to a puzzle. When the puzzle is complete, they earn a reward! This not only promotes teamwork and togetherness but you can also use the puzzle as an example of many pieces coming together to create a whole, just like a class full of students.

File crate with each student's name on it. File work for them to do when they are "done" Would use, but wouldn't call brownie points, makes it seem like students who always get to extra work are "doing better" than those who don't.

Make your own bouncy balls from scratch. Just borax and corn starch. This is a ridiculously cool science experiment.
Cornstarch, Cool Science Experiment, Diy Bouncy Ball, Make Your Own Bouncy Ball, Crafts With Borax, Food Color, Polymer Ball, Borax Crafts, Corn Starch
Make your own bouncy balls from scratch. This is a ridiculously cool science experiment. Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball - Procedure Procedure 1. Label one cup 'Borax Solution' and the other cup 'Ball Mixture'. 2. Pour 2 tablespoons warm water and 1/2 teaspoon borax powder into the cup labeled 'Borax Solution'. Stir the mixture to dissolve the borax. Add food coloring, if desired. 3. Pour 1 tablespoon of glue into the cup labeled 'Ball Mixture'. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the borax solution you just made and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Do not stir. Allow the ingredients to interact on their own for 10-15 seconds and then stir them together to fully mix. Once the mixture becomes impossible to stir, take it out of the cup and start molding the ball with your hands. 4. The ball will start out sticky and messy, but will solidify as you knead it. 5. Once the ball is less sticky, go ahead and bounce it! 6. You can store your plastic ball in a sealed ziploc bag when you are finished playing with it. 7. Don't eat the materials used to make the ball or the ball itself. Wash your work area, utensils, and hands when you have completed this activity.
DIY Bouncy Balls!! No freakin' way! All you need is borax, cornstarch, glue, water and food coloring!
Make your own bouncy balls from scratch: borax, glue, water, food coloring, corn starch! This is a ridiculously cool science experiment.
