K-12 Water Module

NEW Explain it with Molecules- Why does ice float?-- How does soap work? -- Why is diamond so hard?-- Why do carcinogens like nicotine cause cancer? -- Why is a salt crystal cubic in shape? -- This is an interactive activity using the JMol applet which allows students to interact with molecules. No plug-in is needed.
