This is a 21 slide PowerPoint that teaches about static electricity. It begins by describing the construction of an element, including the protons, neutrons, and electrons. It continues to teach how static electricity is caused by the imbalance of positive (protons) and negative (electrons) charges, how some objects are conductors and others are insulators, and how opposite charges attract and like charges repel. You may also be interested in the student note taking guide that corresponds with this PowerPoint. In addition, I also am selling a packet that includes experiments of static electricity.
