Because water molecules stick together,
they form a thin film on the surface of pools
of water, on which some organisms can walk


Water molecules are able to move against
the force of gravity up plant stems


Because of its polarity, water molecules are attracted and stick to other molecules, making water really good at dissolving a wide variety of substances


Because of its polarity, water molecules are attracted and stick to one another


A water molecule has slight positive and
negative charges. This makes the molecule “sticky”

Because of its polarity, water is attracted to and sticks to other substances
