In 1750 Benjamin Franklin demonstrated the link between static electricity and storm clouds.
Static electricity happens in a place or region where there is a build up of electrical charge. We often can see and hear static electricity, this is when we see or feel a spark. Often we will touch something that gives off a spark and it feels like a small electric shock. This is static electricity.
To help the younger learner understand static electricity we have researched and compiled a book on lesson plans and experiments. The scientific explanations on static electricity without reference to practical and hands on activities would be too advanced for very young learners. For older learners, I have included a scientific printout explaining all there is to know about static electricity.
