Reviewer Comments:

In this activity, middle school students use common household materials to demonstrate basic concepts of static electricity. The resource includes detailed lesson objectives, a materials list, procedures and suggested assessment. Student worksheets are exceptionally organized and clear, and include questions throughout the investigation, as well as a more formal assessment at the end of the activity. Answer keys are provided for all student assessment and anticipated lab results. All handouts are uploaded as both a Word document and a pdf, for the user’s downloading preference. This focused and well-developed activity can be used immediately in the classroom.
