This Interactive Notebook active can be done with one page of paper. You have the option of using a small or a large version of the activity. The objective of this mini one lesson packet is to introduce students to positive and negative charges and their role in static electricity, lightning, and the difference between conductors and insulators. This packet produces interactive notebook cut and glue pages to add to your notebooks to support the first lessons that introduce positive and negative charges and how those charges repel and attract each other. It is a companion to the introduction to electricity and conductors and insulators. The activity is a perfect companion to MacMillan McGraw Hill fourth grade science. The cut and glue pages provide instructional narratives on charges and how lightning is created. The page for lightning can be cut in to 8 different pieces for students to arrange in sequential order.
