In this activity, students will explore similarities and differences among liquids and build foundational ideas of matter and molecular structure. Students will investigate different properties of liquids to help them explain how raindrops run down a window, observe how insects can walk on water, and understand that liquid fits into the container in which it is held.
Matter and its Interactions
Real World Science Topics:
- A comparison of the properties of liquids
- An application of how properties of liquids can explain natural phenomenon
After completing this activity, students should be able to use models to describe unique properties of matter in the liquid state.
