Get the wheels turning in your students’ heads with this fun lab experiment and tabbed booklet! Your class will have the opportunity to see what happens when a charged balloon touches a light bulb, in addition to doing lots of critical thinking, reading, and writing!
Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from the Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, then you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet you are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This resource was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts, all while still meeting the nonfiction criteria of the Common Core.
