Some fun Halloween science for elementary students! Balloons and heads are used to generate a static charge on the balloon. Students then try to get tissue paper 'ghosts' to dance. Students can apply the scientific method and all the science behind the attraction is explained. Document camera-ready images are provided to help you teach this topic. Static electricity is a great example of a force for young children to learn. Simply print and use.
When students finish, they can work on the provided activity worksheet. Answer key included.
