Electroscopes are a simple instrument that kids can use to give evidence for static charges. Kids can build their own... once built they can last for years. They have both a qualitative and a quantitive aspect. Electroscopes are a great way to begin

This simple activity is a great place to start an investigation into static electricity. By limiting the materials and ensuring that the charging is via conduction, kids can deduce rightly that like charges repel.The video has two parts, the first

How can we help kids visualize the charges that cause static forces? This is the question I wrestled with for a while before developing this model. I love that only the negative electrons can move – I also love that students can easily see when

In order to understand static electricity, you'll need to study the Triboelectric series. It's here you'll learn that charging by conduction doesn't happen by charging by friction, that's a common misconception. The electrical charge in

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent many years in various classrooms with a variety of ages, the only constant was science. I started as a high school physics teacher before spending 10 years at the Smithsonian writing teacher materials for the National Air and Space Museum. Later our family was involved in a school start up and I wrote the science curriculum for grades K–8 there. I ended up teaching Middle School science and absolutely loved it! My materials are a compilation of everything I've learned along the way.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm definitely calmer now that I've been at it 30+ years! Love seeing students take charge of their own learning and am always working to foster that in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Hmm, just showing up every day and seeing the shining faces of students who are excited and eager to investigate and find out about scientific phenomena.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received a BS from Wheaton College, in Wheaton, IL

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew up in the Bahamas and spent time teaching overseas in Kenya.
