This simulation is a great visual for students to fully understand the properties of water molecules. I can see myself using this as a visual in my classroom.

This animation is several minutes long, but provides ton of information, ranging from structure of water, properties of water, dipole-dipole interactions, differences in solid, liquid and gas structures, etc. I would love to use this animation in my class, but in segments. All at once would cause information overload for my students.
