Surface tension is an excellent example of a force for elementary students. 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.
This individual resource is also part of an all-inclusive bundle for the topic of surface tension. You will save a full 25% on each resource when you purchase this bundle!
