There are very interesting visual effects that occur when surface tension is broken and you get three effects described with this resource. All the science behind surface tension is completely described including different levels of understanding regarding how the detergent breaks the surface tension of water. There is also a simple demonstration that uses a rubber band and a document camera-ready image is provided: both will help students understand the science of surface tension.
