Water and Ice Module
 The following activities target a middle school and high population. Some activities may be adaptable to more advanced elementary school students.

ABOUT WATER AND ICE

An introduction to the properties of water and ice from a molecular point of view.

WHY IS WATER SUCH A GOOD SOLVENT?From Explain it with Molecules --- This is a 3-D interactive activity using the JMol Applet.

WATER CONCEPTS

Properties of a water molecule, water dimer, motion of water molecules, water symmetry, hydrogen bonding...

WATER AND ICE STRUCTURE

Using Java Applets the structure of water and ice are compared at the molecular level.

EXPLAIN IT WITH MOLECULES MODULEWhy is water such a good solvent? Interactive molecule module using the JMol Applet
EXPLAIN IT WITH MOLECULES MODULEWhy does ice float? Interactive molecule module using the JMol Applet.

ANIMATIONS OF WATER MOLECULES IN MOTION

Molecular Dyamics Simulations of water at the molecular level have been converted to Flash Animations...

What happens when two water molecules approach each other -- The Water Dimer Animation.

See a small box of water molecules in motion.
