They discuss the reason for the rubber gloves in the experiment again and have students list ways they can stay safe during a lightning storm.

For those topics that are not covered fully in the student textbook, Lesson Planet is a fantastic tool to find materials to complement the text and provide both additional instruction and reinforcement to the learning process.
