This resource outlines an experiment that can be conducted in a classroom. This experiment would be great to include in a lesson plan for grade five science. The students can create slime to simulate the mucus that is located throughout their body (in nasal passageways, lungs, stomach). Learning about the role and physical attributes of mucus is important when teaching grade five students about the human respiratory system and digestive system.
