Static Electricity Game
- Supplies Needed: Socks, Balloons
After learning a bit about Friction, it could be good to teach your kids about Static Electricity. Of course, static electricity is often produced by friction, but it’s simply a stationary electric charge. You can get it from rubbing your socks on your carpet, and even rubbing your hair on an inflated balloon.
Both need to be done relatively fast. While this is how you can create static, keep in mind that the human body also has forms of electricity inside of it. This is why we’re able to produce static shock on others when we’ve created it. Meanwhile, we can shock ourselves if we touch something like metal. This could be a fun science game for kids to play.
