Teaching Science On A Budget

A quick lesson in static electricity for very young children:

You will need:

Tissue paper
a plastic ruler
a piece of wool or silk
A flat surface (like a clipboard)

Cut the tissue paper into a few fish shapes. Rub the plastic ruler quickly over the wool. Hold ruler over tissue paper fish, and watch them, "swim".

There, you've taught static electricity.
