Science Thursday: Hair-Raising Physics

Hello All,

Today we put together our terrarium lesson from yore and our circuits lesson from last week and talked about static electricity and lightning.  We talked about how clouds get saturated with condensation and it rains, and when they become thunder clouds they become charged. 


We rubbed our feet on the rug and got shocked when we touched metal and we drew lightning going from negatively charged clouds to the positively charged ground, or person, or other cloud.  We used static electricity to move some objects and lift some straws to show how negative and positive are attracted to each other. 

Have a great weekend,
