Oh, we had fun with this!
First, we explored flour, salt and cornflour, using describing words and saying what we thought each smelt, looked and tasted like. Students were encouraged to use the word ‘dry’.
We then added water, as much or as little as the students wanted, and used the word ‘wet’, mixing as we went. This really met the sensory needs of a lot of the students, and was so enjoyable we did it again.
Extension work included adding oil instead of water, and also making salt dough to explore. Salt dough with added oil had an interesting, addictive consistency
