A fun activity that uses simple, local materials to demonstrate cohesion, a property of liquids.
Add this activity to your chemistry unit. Use it as a way to practice being a scientist or working with a team of scientists. Send it home for families to try at home. Include it in a station at your Family Science Night.
I sometimes use an activity like this if I have a class that's not getting along and needs to have a conversation about working together and being more cohesive.
Here's what I included in this great product:
♦ A description of the activity
♦ A teacher background about cohesion
♦ A web page with much more
♦ A video of the activity so you can preview it or show a student who benefits from seeing it again or was absent from class
♦ A take home worksheet that's saved as a Word™ document so you can change it for your students
♦ 12 fun, copyright free images of water insects that use surface tension and cohesion to float on water - use this to stimulate a conversation about cohesion
I added a bunch of resources to this activity to create a distance learning or independent activity: Distance Learning: Cohesion Pepper.
This activity is part of a series including: Cohesion Boats, Cohesion Cheesecloth, Cohesion Clips in a Jar, Cohesion Float Clips, Cohesion Loops, and a FREEBIE Cohesion Pepper. Save half by buying the ♥ BUNDLE ♥.
