Students test the stickiness of natural substances. In this adhesion as a property of matter activity, 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.
Students investigate the strength of different adhesives. For this physical science lesson, students compare the force needed to peel adhesive tapes from a surface. They analyze collected data and make a generalization.
Students 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. Students answer questions on a worksheet as they experiment.
Young scholars perform classroom experiments to observe adhesion. They perform a second experiment using sand, salt, water, and a heat lamp to observe the principle of capillary action. They also experiment with adhesion in plants.
Middle schoolers research on the history of adhesives. In this science lesson, students select one test to use in finding the stickiness of adhesives. They collect data and formulate a conclusion.
Fifth graders examine the concepts of cohesion and adhesion. They conduct a class experiment, predicting and observing what happens when a paper towel is placed between two cups of colored water, and recording the results.
Students explore the properties of different adhesives. In this physics lesson plan, students construct a building structure and determine what glue to use in the process. They present their design in class.
Students investigate how plants transport water and nutrients through the plant. For 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.
Students explore the properties of water. For 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.
Learners investigate the adhesion conditions and surface for using post it notes. In this post it notes lesson plan, students discover the adhesive properties, test the notes for strength, and interpret data and draw conclusions.
Learners differentiate adhesion from cohesion. In this chemistry lesson, students investigate surface tension and describe how water behaves in this phenomenon. They complete a lab report from the investigation.
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 test the adhesive strength of different tapes. In this adhesive lesson, students conduct an experiment to test the shear strength of the adhesives, take measurements, record data, and draw conclusions to explain each product's usefulness.
Students examine the relationship between leukocyte adhesion and migration in response to chemoattractants. They discuss sterile techniques, observe a demonstration using mock cell culture, and develop a procedure for studying the leukocyte/chemoattractant relationship.
Students investigate the adhesive properties of different "glues." In this science lesson, discover how the surface of a substance affects stickiness. They record data and share their findings in class.
Students investigate quality products. In this Physical Science lesson plan, students will test three different types of caulking. The students are looking for the caulk with the best adhesion after two days of curing.
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.
Students observe demonstrations that show adhesion, cohesion, equilibrium density, pressure of gases and solubility. In this gases lesson plan, students observe a demonstration of raisins, spaghetti, and popcorn moving up and down in seltzer water. They observe a balloon filled with CO2 from a carbonated beverage squeezed while on top of the bottle and they observe the effects of heat on the solubility of carbon dioxide.
Young scholars investigate adhesion, cohesion and surface tension. In this molecular forces lesson plan, students observe multiple demonstrations that show surface tension, the attraction of water molecules to each other and the ability of molecules to attract one another. Young scholars make soap bubbles and observe the color, the relative thickness of the top and bottom of the bubbles, the movement of water within the bubble and the longevity of the bubbles.
For anyone studying biochemistry, it is important to understand the amazing properties of water. Here, learners draw the water molecule and explain the bonds it is able to form. They undertake explanations of adhesion, cohesion, solubility, and capillarity. They tell how the specific heat is of benefit to organisms and discuss ionization and buffer action.
