Product Description
Introduce static electricity with quick demonstrations; try out a team activity to get paper bits to jump under a variety of conditions; make a piece of string lift from the table. Great activities that have students practicing being part of a team, managing materials, and recording data.

I recorded a video to give you a quick overview of the lessons and created simple videos you can use to preview or review activities. A student text has been saved with three reading levels in English and two in Spanish. Students who benefit from listening to the text can use the recordings included with your purchase.

A variety of activities and performance assessments are included to assess student understanding.

The activities use materials* that you can collect locally.

This lesson supports NGSS 3-PS2-1•, 3-PS2-2º, 3-PS2-3♦.

It’s part of a series about physics units including: forces, pushes and pulls, air and water pressure, magnetism, and this product.

• 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the
motion of an object.

º 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to
predict future motion.

♦ 3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two
objects not in contact with each other.
