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

♥  ♥  You have several options for presenting this fun activity to your students ♥  ♥  

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 ♥.
