This resource provides three activities on static electricity. Static electricity is an excellent example of a weak force to teach elementary students. Each activity has teacher information sheets and student activity sheets. Optimum for grades 3-6. Aligns with NGSS 3-PS2-3 and NGSS 3-PS2-1
Important note: Winter is the best time for static electricity effects. Cold and dry days are optimum for static electricity. During warmer days, the presence of water in the atmosphere inhibits this weak force.
This resource is part of a Grades 3-5 FORCES ACTIVITY PACKET
