A fun tool to help teach water concepts.
- Ideal for grades 5-12
- Embedded magnets in atoms reflect the correct positive or negative charges
- Students experience molecular attraction or repulsion hands-on
Your students will use these magnetic water molecules to discover hydrogen bonding, make ice, dissolve salt, evaporate water, explore transpiration, create ethanol, and much more. Water Kits© enhance learning through hand-on activity and facilitate more in depth concept conversations. Your students can feel the various strengths of hydrogen, covalent and ionic bonds. They can explore the water cycle – even make ice. They also can show the differences between molecular adhesion, cohesion and capillary action and demonstrate surface tension, evaporation, condensation and solubility.
Materials Included (per cup):
1 Plastic cup
12 Water molecules
1 Ethane molecule
1 Hydroxyl group
1 six-cup tray (case of 8 only)
