Particle board is made of lots of small pieces (or particles) of wood, such as wood shavings and sawdust and a glue called resin. We made the resin out of water and cornstarch. It looked liked mashed potatoes. Mrs. Kurt gave each of us a handful of the resin. We had to knead it to make it smooth like play dough. Next we put the resin into a cup with wood shavings and sawdust and used a craft stick to mix it. It was pretty exciting to see how the wood mixture stuck to the resin.
