Learn how to make Glacier Goo—a type of Silly Putty that will demonstrate the movement of glaciers.

Why Make Glacier Goo?

Glaciers are pretty fascinating things: massive, moving, blue-and-white mountains of ice that destroy nearly everything in their paths, creating landforms such as U-shaped valleys, moraines and kettle lakes, to name a few.

For hundreds of thousands of years, the movement of glaciers has shaped land through erosion and deposition.

Glacier Goo is a really cool way to learn how glaciers transform the earth and literally move mountains—and you don’t have to wait a thousand years to see the results.
