Electricity Lab Day #2

Students were asked to predict what it would take to illuminate a light bulb.  They didn’t know the materials that they had available when they drew their prediction.  Each pair of students was asked to light bulb at first and then had additional challenges given to them.

Static Electricity

We had a great day in Room 661 playing with electricity, static electricity.  The students were documenting what happened when a charge balloon came close to various objects in the classroom.  Some of the objects that were tested were paper dots, the walls, chairs, hair, and soda cans.

We will be building circuits in the next few days as well.  We watched a couple of videos about static electricity.  Some of the videos involved some seriously crazy contraptions….. I think they want to build them.   :-\

 

Here are some of the pictures from today:
