Standard IV - Electricity
Standard: Students will understand features of static and current electricity.
Objective 1: Describe the behavior of static
electricity as observed in nature and everyday occurrences.
Objective 2: Analyze the behaviour of current electricity.
Earth and some earth materials have magnetic properties. Without touching them, a magnet attracts things made of iron and either pushes or pulls on other magnets. Electricity is a form of energy. Current electricity can be generated and transmitted through pathways. Some materials are capable of carrying electricity more effectively than other materials. Static electricity is a result of objects being electrically charged. Without touching them, materials that are electrically charged may either push or pull other charged materials.
