As the 8th graders are moving on to high school, a lot of students from Kingswood Elementary have been stopping by to see my old yearbook, so I thought I'd post some photos. Here you'll find students in 5-11th grade now. See if you can recognize anyone!

Is Water Wet?

The decades-old debate has been going on to answer the question; is water wet? 

by BookBolts, March 17, 2021.

In a RC Times survey, 73.3% of people said that water is wet.  When you put even one water molecule on a sheet of paper, that paper is wet. So, say you have an 8 oz. glass of water. In that glass of water there are TONS of water molecules. All of the water molecules are attached to each other. Using that logic, if there is even 1 water molecule on something it is wet, you could say that since one molecule is surrounded by others, then it is wet. Therefore, “water is wet,” says one student. Seems reasonable, right? Well, it depends on what you mean by wet. Wetness is the form of being covered with water, or any liquid that can stick to solids. But if we define wet as a sensation that is caused by coming in contact with water, then water is definitely wet to us. Also, if you define wet as being liquid or made of moisture, then water is definitely wet, but let’s see the other point of view. 

Water saturates a napkin to make it wet.

Let’s go back to the definition of wet. Wetness is having the ability to stick to solid surfaces. Water is not a solid, therefore, from this point of view, water is not wet. The word wet is defined as, “Covered with, or saturated with liquid (such as water).” Using this definition, we will attempt to prove why water cannot be wet. ... Since the word wet is defined as being saturated with a substance, it is impossible for water to be wet,” says one eighth grader.

So where is this going? Well, both opinions are correct, based on what definition of wet you use. Now you know the other point of view!
