We are finally returning to our homeschool groove and with that comes getting back to our hands-on approach to learning.
This morning we broke out our Electricity Science Kit and began experimenting with Static Electricity.
We experimented with salt/pepper, confetti, a Styrofoam ball and a balloon.

Their most favorite experiment was probably the balloon followed by the Salt/Pepper. I really loved this kit because it had EVERYTHING in it and I didn’t have to worry about gathering materials. I also liked the worksheet approach and the boys read the instructions and recorded their observations as they went along.
We have several more experiments to go and the boys are excited!
