What better way is there to learn about surface tension and water molecules than by playing with bubbles? Kat and I have been having a lot of fun exploring the different ways that liquids interact with each other, and the reactions that can take place. This time, we decided to explore surface tension by learning about how bubbles work! Even better, we've taken our lesson to the park and have invited the other kids to come along and learn with us!
The first thing we had to do was talk about surface tension. We've played around with the surface tension of various liquids before, but we still didn't quite understand what it actually meant. After trying several different explanations, we came up with a fantastic way to illustrate it.
