This Action at a Distance Lab lesson plan also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
The concepts involved with static electricity are typically taught in upper elementary physical science units. The lab described in this resource has pupils examine the behavior of small pieces of paper and a balloon when a charged piece of cellophane tape is brought near. They also investigate of the interactions between the different pieces of tape. Know that there is no lab sheet provided, so you will either need to create one, or have learners write up their own lab reports. The bonus in this resource is the links to associated reading materials from the same publisher.
