Surface Tension of Water

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.
