PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This inquiry-based lab is designed to give students exposure to the following properties of water: polarity, hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic vs. hydrophilic substances, cohesion, adhesion and surface tension, capillary action, heat capacity and rate of vaporization, states of matter, transparency and pH. The lab is designed to be done as 13 stations, the first being teacher led and the other 12 in a round-robin format. The first page of this document is a teacher set-up guide, outlining what materials you need to lay out at each station. The next 3 pages are the student response sheets where they document what happened at each station and answer questions as they go. The next 12 are the station instructions themselves. Just print off one set, laminate and put out at each station. The supply list is simple, but does require access to a molecular model set. If you don't have this, however, you can substitute styrofoam balls or marshmallows and toothpicks. This can be used by chemistry teachers, but there is an emphasis on why these properties are critical to organisms. I use it in my upper level biology class.
