Beware the Blob

Sometimes, pupils just need a little break. They need to have some fun. Strangely addictive, at first glance the blobby fellow who resides at Blob Sallad seems like nothing more than a bit of mindless fun. However, after tinkering with it for a few minutes, I thought back to lessons I used teach about bacteria and how such microscopic miscreants can reproduce at an alarming rate. By pressing the H key, visitors to Blob Sallad can split the blob. Press the H key over and over, and there'll be a lot of blobs. Press the J key and the blobs will join together. Press the G key and gravity either disappears or becomes active again. Bring your students to this quirky site and ask them what they think of the blob.
