Learners explore water's property of cohesion through two investigations.
In this activity, learners investigate the behavior of magnets. Learners create a "wonder wand" with a magnet so they can move a skater around.
In this activity about water's cohesive and adhesive properties and why water molecules are attracted to each other, learners test if objects repel or absorb water.
In this activity, learners explore the forces at work in water. Learners experiment to find out what happens to pepper in water when they touch it with bar soap and liquid detergent.
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Animal Scent Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into animal behavior.
In this activity (page 10), learners explore how molecules self-assemble according to forces of attraction and repulsion.
In this activity, learners will observe magnetic properties and sort objects by them. This activity uses everyday items to teach learners about magnetic forces, poles and properties of magnets.
In this activity, learners conduct a simple experiment to see how electrically charged things like plastic attract electrically neutral things like water.
In this activity, learners create secret messages using a candle. Learners discover that watercolor paint is attracted to some materials, like paper fibers, but not others, like oil.
Water sticks to all kinds of things in nature — flowers, leaves, spider webs - and doesn't stick to others, such as a duck's back.
In this nanoscience activity, learners discover that it's easy to pour water out of a regular-sized cup, but not out of a miniature cup.
