Static Electricity Electricity is a very fascinating thing to talk to your students about. They will enjoy learning about this great thing. Here are some great activities to incorporate into your lesson plans all about electricity. A great game to play is called flashlight tag. Cover all your windows for this activity so that your classroom is completely dark. Pick one person to be it. All the other students hide in the classroom when the person that is it counts to ten. When the person is done counting to ten they go and look for all the other students. If they think they see a student then they sign the flashlight on them. If there is a student in the light then that student must help the person that is it. Play until there is only one person left. That person is the winner. This person gets to be the new person that is it in the new game. Another great activity is to play with static electricity. After explaining why this occurs have your students experiment with it. Ask them what happens when they rub their shoes on a carpet and then touch someone? Have them try to do this. It should shock the other person. Then ask them what happens when you rub a balloon in your hair and touch it to a wall? The answer is the static electricity will make it stick to the wall! They will love doing both of these activities.
Extractions: Electricity - I often begin my electricity unit by talking about open and closed circuits. I use an Energy Ball to demonstrate the concept. The children stand in a circle holding hands. One child in the circle puts a finger on one side on the energy ball and another child does the same thing on the other side of the ball... source

Extractions: Procedures Show students the "Electricity's Power" segment, having them focus on the professions — lightning researcher, scientist specializing in electricity in space, and a lineman. Next, have each student choose one profession. Each student's task is to learn about the profession and write a story as if they worked in that field. Give students time in class to work on their stories. They may use the following Web sites as starting points for their research:

Extractions: Here is our "top ten" list of actions any of us can take to help promote the development and use of renewable energy in Texas. 1. Attend a Meeting or Event - Turn off your computer, get out of your chair, and go learn more about renewable energy! There are renewable energy related events happening all over the state. 2. Teach Your Kids about Renewable Energy - Our lesson plans help teachers and home schoolers teach renewable energy to all levels. Whether it's building a model solar car or a pizza box solar cooker, learning about renewable energy can be fun for kids. Our lesson plans are integrated with statewide learning standards, too.

Extractions: This activity is designed for 10 and 11 year old children. At this age, children are able to manage the physical tasks involved such as attaching wires to batteries and bulbs and they are able to record their observations and communicate them to others. Since they are still in the concrete operational stage of cognitive development, they require physical modeling of abstract concepts (see "Conceptual Invention" below); with such modeling, they are able to extend their understanding into new situations (see "Expansion" below). With guidance, fourth graders are able to work in groups to analyze problems, isolate variables, and evaluate potential solutions. B.

Grade Levels: Come to class prepared with some data from appliances in your own home, or in the school. Use this information to create problems that can be solved with the equation W = V x A. Explain the terms "volt," "amp," "watt," "watt-hour," and "kilowatt-hour." This is not for high-school physics, so the technical aspects of electricity need not be covered; students are simply told that electricity has strength, or power, that is measured in amps, and that it is "pushed" into their homes by a force that is measured in volts. The amount of work that electricity does is measured in watts, and the amount of work done in an hour is measured in watt-hours. One thousand watt-hours equals one kilowatt-hour. Consumers are charged for their electricity by the kilowatt-hour.
