To learn about static electricity, we played with balloons in class. We rubbed them on our hair, silk, and cotton to see which one generated the most static electricity. We experimented with sticking them to walls and tables.
Ask your child what happened when we blew on the balloon? Did it fall off the wall? Did the balloon roll off the table? What happened when two balloons hung from strings close together? Did they move?
