Exploring Electricity - Four Activities

These are four classic activities used for instructing upper elementary electricians. The first involves experimenting with the Van de Graaff generator. The second is a series of hands-on experiences with static. In the third activity, explorers dangle ropes, give them a charge, and observe how they repel each other. In the final activity, they construct series and parallel circuits. Although these are typical activities, the instructions provided are detailed, especially helpful if you are new to teaching electricity.
