Students explore the polarity of a water molecule and how it affects the properties of water. They explore separation of water and why it occurs, then make predictions regarding separation based on the properties of the liquid.
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.
Without water there would be no life on this planet. Biology learners find out why by reading this handout. Create a worksheet of questions to answer after the reading. Follow it up with quick demonstrations or laboratory activities that demonstrate each of the amazing properties of water, including: polarity, cohesion, specific heat, evaporation, density, and its role as the universal solvent. 
Learners use video, Internet research, graphs and tables, worksheets and hands-on experiments to investigate the properties of water in a lake environment. They work under direction or through an inquiry process.
Students discuss a set of questions about water and some of its properties. In this properties of water lesson, students complete a series of simple experiments posing a question, interpreting results and making predictions. Students describe one observation they have made outside the lab that shows each of a set of 9 phenomenon relate to the experiments.
A fascinating and engaging lesson on the properties of water awaits you. In it, learners engage in four activities that are designed to teach about the properties of water. This exciting plan has worksheets embedded in it which make the implementation of the activities simple to do. Young scientists shoud love this!
Students identify several properties of water as a universal substance, describe the composition of several complex color mixtures and separate the components of dye using chromatographic technique.
Students brainstorm on ways they use water, and where water comes from. They view video, Down the Drain, to gain specific facts about water use, properties of water, problems of water and the water cycle. They perform a lab activity demonstrating
Explain the properties of water. Identify the properties of water that make it a polar molecule Describe hydrogen bonds and how they differ from covalent bonds Discuss the differences between hard water and soft water Compare the heat of fusio
Learners examine water's properties. They participate in hands-on activities to show the properties of water.
Young scholars explore the four physical properties of water (high surface tension, high boiling and freezing points, high specific heat capacity and density anomaly).
Students work with three stations to demonstrate the properties of water. They explore water's boiling point, freezing point, and its ability to store heat.
Students explore the different properties of water. They experimenting with different activities, each one explaining a different property of water. Students read an article "Small, Ues, But Might: The Molecule Called Water." and then complete the experiments.
Students list items they know and want to know about water on personal K-W-L charts. They describe what happened during the warm up activity in their science journal. Students travel to four different stations and perform the different tasks that explore properties of water.
Twelfth graders work in groups to design concept maps that illustrate the importance of water. They consider the properties of water that make it essential to life and address the issue of water conservation, including tips on how water conservation can be integrated into daily living.
What are the properties of water? Lead your class through a series of activities to answer this question. Discuss findings and interpretations with the class as a whole, encouraging them to speak in complete sentences and to make connections between the different properties they describe.
Students study the three physical properties of water-solid, liquid and gas. They classify materials as solids, liquids, and gases. They define the terms solids, liquids and matter and explain that when materials are manipulated, they can take on different properties.
In this phase properties of water worksheet, students draw Lewis strictures of water molecules and describe the bonds in water. They answer questions about the various phases of water and how the intermolecular forces change in solid, liquid and gas phases.
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. Note that the handout is a photocopy in pdf format rather than an original document.
Students examine water properties and and how they relate to freezing.  For this cell biology lesson students complete a lab experiment.
