Below the Surface: Surface Tension IIAdd to list Details
In this activity learners explore surface tension. Why are certain objects able to float on the surface of water and how do detergents break the surface tension of water?
Water TreatmentAdd to list Details
Water treatment on a large scale enables the supply of clean drinking water to communities.
Marine EcosystemsAdd to list Details
In the wild, small crustaceans known as brine shrimp live in marine habitats such as saltwater lakes.
Freshwater EcosystemsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create a freshwater ecosystem in a large plastic bottle. Learners cut and prepare bottles, then fill with water, aquatic plants, snails and fish.
Stick to It: Adhesion IIAdd to list Details
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.
Moving On Up: Capillary Action 1Add to list Details
Over the course of several days, learners explore the property of water that helps plants move water from roots to leaves or gives paper towels the capacity to soak up water.
Breaking the Tension: Surface Tension 1Add to list Details
Learners explore how the attractive forces between water molecules create surface tension and allow certain objects to float on the surface of water.
Stuck on You: AdhesionAdd to list Details
Learners explore water adhesion and learn about why water molecules are more strongly attracted to some substances than others.
Moving On Up: Capillary Action IIAdd to list Details
Learners explore capillary action in plants (such as plants ability to move water from roots to leaves) in an investigation called Paper Blooms.
Water Quality and pH Levels in Aquatic EcosystemsAdd to list Details
In this fun and in depth hands-on experiment, learners test various liquid samples (distilled water, lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda mixed with water) to determine their pH levels and identify e
