Learning Objective

Students will learn about cohesion and adhesion as properties of water.


Students will love these fun experiments with water and they will learn about cohesion, adhesion and surface tension. This unit is based on the properties of matter strand in NGSS. Includes labs and reading passages on properties of water. This science unit of lessons includes three other products: Cohesion and Adhesion Lab and Close Reading, Drops of Water on a Penny and Designing An Experiment Lesson. This resource also includes a close reading strategy and follow up pages aligned with 5th Grade Reading Informational Text.

This unit has integrated lessons and addresses CCSS math, CCSS reading and NGSS science standards for 5th grade. This unit includes a slide show, work sheets, lesson plans, interactive notebook flaps and folds and informational text articles. The labs are hands-on and inquiry based written in the 5 E format. Simple house hold materials are all you need for these labs.

The Close Reading strategy and follow up pages encourage the students to read back into the nonfiction passages provided with text dependent questions. Students will learn about the interesting properties of water and they will make a model to describe particles too small to see.

NGSS Standards Addressed:

5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

Science and Engineering Practices addressed:

Asking questions . Planning and carrying out investigations

Analyzing and interpreting data

Using mathematics and computational thinking

Constructing explanations .

Engaging in argument from evidence

Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

The following products are included in this bundle:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties. Examples of materials to be identified could include baking soda and other powders, metals, minerals, and liquids. Examples of properties could include color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, and solubility; density is not intended as an identifiable property. Assessment does not include density or distinguishing mass and weight.
Analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent.
Compare and contrast the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in two or more texts.
Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade 5 topic or subject area.
Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text.
