Charge and Charging

The Charge and Charging Toolkit provides teachers with standards-based resources for designing lesson plans and units that pertain to the topic of electrostatic charge and electrostatic charging processes. The Toolkit includes resources that emphasize charge and its connection to atomic structure, basic interaction forces between charged objects, processes used to charge objects, grounding of charged objects, the law of conservation of charge, and historical information associated with our understanding of static electricity. The Toolkit is supported by Lessons 1 and 2 of the Static Electricity Chapter at The Physics Classroom Tutorial.

Each toolkit can be viewed in three different ways.

  1. Charge and Charging - HTML Version of Complete Toolkit

    The HTML version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions and links to their location on the web. The complete toolkit also includes learning objectives and references the pertinent standards addressed by the resources.

  2. Charge and Charging - PDF Version of Complete Toolkit

    The PDF version of the complete toolkit contains all the resources with full descriptions in a printer-friendly format. Learning objectives and relevant standards are also included in the PDF Version of the complete toolkit.

  3. Charge and Charging - Toolkit To Go

    The Toolkit To Go is a 2-page PDF document that provides an abbreviated version of the complete toolkit. It contains as much information as could fit on two pages. Toolkits to Go can be photo-copied back-to-back, hole-punched, and filed in a teacher's folder or three-ring binder for future reference.
