This is an excerpt from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science workbooks! [it's pronounced like "Brawsee"]
Printing should be done in Landscape and DOUBLE-SIDED, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' side.

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100
State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to
90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been handily beating the
State while teaching an average of 110 students every year - and
with only about 38 minutes for science class! It's a matter of public
record: I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average
of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.
All this - and with:
No Teaching Assistants,
No Remediation Class,
No Test-Prep books,
and just 38 minutes for Science class.
THAT is what I less-than-humbly call 'Teacher Effectiveness.'
So what are my kids learning, doing and using?
Bossy Brocci worksheets.
1) Analyze & Complete a Data Table comparing Water's Formula, Mass, Sourc of Cohesive Force, Boiling Point and Surface Tension to 13 other substances:
2) Analyze & Complete a Data Pattern Table for Water's Surface Tension at: 0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 C.
3) Answer 20 Multiple-choice questions based on their Analysis & Observations of the preceding Data Tables
4) Discover that Water's strong intermolecular Hydrogen-bonding is responsible for its High Surface Tension
5) Discover that Water's Temperature and Surface Tension are inversely related - that as Temperature increases, Surface Tension decreases
6) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
7) Be trained to Define and Explain Water's High Surface Tension and its relationship to Temperature methodically & systematically
