Product Description
This activity teaches students about the properties of water as they diagram the forces between water molecules. It focuses on cohesion, adhesion and capillary action and includes an example of how these forces cause a meniscus to form in a test tube. The activity helps students to better understand how molecules interact with each other and with different surfaces.

Each section of the activity explains a term (cohesion, adhesion and capillary action). Using highlighters, students then illustrate the forces between the molecules or between the molecules and a surface. Students use highlighters of different colors for cohesion and adhesion. When students reach the capillary action section, they must use the correct color of highlighter depending on how the molecules are interacting.

This is a great activity that can be used as a teacher's guided lesson or to check your students' degree of understanding.

Terms used in this activity include: postive charge, negative charge, adhesion, cohesion, capillary action and meniscus.
