Product Description
This set of three activities has students investigating the methods of creating a static charge, looking at how the Law of Electrical Charge causes charged objects to push/pull each other, etc.

The lab includes:

-a material list (You can take a look at it in the preview file)
-a quick, multiple choice pre-lab
-student directions for each of the three activities

In a 45-60 minute class, the students can easily complete all three activities, go over them in class, and be given a few minutes to touch up their papers prior to turning them in.

For this activity, as explained in the preview file, I like to roll a die, to determine which of the three activities each of the groups turns in, and is graded on.

I use this activity set with my 7th grade classes, but it would also work well with older grades, up to high school physics, with slight modification of the expectations/questions.

I have a lab video available as well, either for student make-up, or teacher instruction.
