Slime! Homeschooling the Industrial Revolution

This fifth episode in the special series of Histories of the Unexpected Homeschooling explores SLIME and the Industrial Revolution. The Unexpected History of slime is all about the medical properties of snail slime, ectoplasm and Victorian spiritualists, the use of black slugs to lubricate hay carts in pre-Industrial society, and of course the Industrial Revolution. James and Sam explore and discuss the major inventions of the period, including Stevenson’s Rocket, and look out for recipes to make your own magnetic slime!
