Students test the stickiness of natural substances. In this adhesion as a property of matter lesson, students build a tool to test the adhesion of natural "glues" such as honey, peanut butter, flour and water paste, and jelly. Students collect and record data and share their results with the class.
Learners investigate cohesion, adhesion and surface tension through observations and lab experiments. In this cohesion, adhesion and surface tension lesson plan, students rotate to 5 stations around the room and experiment at each station to observe cohesion, adhesion and surface tension. Learners answer questions on a worksheet as they experiment.
Students investigate how plants transport water and nutrients through the plant. In this transportation in plants lesson plan, students use glass tubing, celery stalks, food coloring and leaves from plants to observe adhesion and cohesion of water up the tube and stalk. They also observe the stomata in plants and explain the transpiration theory of how water moves in and out of the cells.
Learners investigate surface tension, adhesion and cohesion. In this surface tension lesson plan, students complete 3 activities to better understand the concepts of surface tension, adhesion and cohesion. Learners add drops of water to a filled glass to observe surface tension, they observe drops of water pushed together to see cohesion and they observe soap breaking the surface tension behind a paper boat in water.
Students explore the properties of water. In this cross curriculum art and physical science lesson, students experiment with a variety of materials to demonstrate the cohesive forces and adhesion of water. Students create a water color wash noting how the properties of water effect their painting.
Students observe, measure, and record the properties in making objects stick together using science tools. In this science lesson, students explore with their senses while mixing flour and water. Additionally, students share their findings as well as write findings in their science journals.
Students review background information about water tension and adhesive forces on sand. In this sand science lesson, students visit a beach and have a sand building competition near water and away from it. Students discuss water tension and capillary action. Students then all build castles in the wet sand. Students then make a list of things in nature or man made that wouldn't exist without surface tension or capillary action.
Five fabulous procedures introduce physics or chemistry classes to special properties of matter. They discover adhesion and cohesion, solubility, melting and boiling points, and viscosity through hands-on experiences. Tests are performed, not just on water, but on a variety of interesting compounds like naphthalene. It would be wise to add this resource to your library of laboratory activities.
Now this is the type of activity that can engage the whole class. After completing a unit on fresh water ecosystems and animal life, learners help design and create a three-dimensional mural. They use what they've learned in science to inform the choices they make in art. The full instructions and materials list is included to take the guess work out of the project.
Games are great for practicing any number of basic skills. Here is a set of wonderful instructions for making a braille version of a spinning game, where children win points by correctly reading/identifying the high-frequency words the pointer lands on. It is suggested to make the game to go along with the words found in an early reader such as, The Cat in the Hat. Tip: A game such as this one can be used with both sighted and unsighted learners to foster social relationships in an integrated classroom.
