Students use this worksheet to practice identifying the charge on different objects (by counting electrons and protons), and are asked to determine which charged objects would repel or attract each other (based on their charges). It's great for a homework assignment to reinforce charges, or to do in class and discuss. It is designed to support MS-PS2-3 and MS-PS2-5.
