Water Lesson

In this lesson, you will learn about the many characteristics of water such as it atoms, polar covalent and hydrogen bonding properties and how that influences water's attraction to charged objects, its behavior as a solvent, surface tension, capillary action, and why ice floats. you will also learn about heat capacity and how water is used as a coolant as well as water and pH.

Interactive Activities: This lesson has interactive activities that let you explore water's interaction with charged objects. You pick the liquid to test. There is also a summary concept map activity, a drag and drop to practice determining how many atoms a molecule has, and a glossary of terms and their definitions.
