Secret Formulas: Paste

Paste
is not to taste,
nor does paste
make waste.
Here's the trick:
Paste makes
things stick!
First we experimented with the sticky quality of several materials: salt, baking soda, wheat flour, rice flour and corn starch.

We ranked them from the stickiest to the least sticky.
Then they each picked 5 spoonfuls of at least two substances of their own choice.
Then we tested the sticking quality of each of their own secret formulas
by gluing a bean to a card.

Looks like their pastes worked really well!
