Set up 4 jars and fill each 1/2 filled with collected pond water. Put some chopped hay in one jar, a tsp. of rice in another, 1/4 tsp. egg yolk in another and 2 tsp. soil in the last. Place in a lighted area (but not direct sunlight) and culture for several days. On day 3, take a drop from each (use a new dropper for each jar) and make 4 slides to observe under the microscope. Make new slides and observe again several days later.

  1. The link for “How a Slime Mold Designed the Tokyo Railway System” doesn’t go to the intended video. It IS about the Tokyo Railway System, but nothing about slime mold.

    1. Thank you!! We had linked the wrong video. The link is fixed now:–G_lO3LC7n
      We so appreciate you!
