Science 9 – Students made their own pseudo electroscopes today. It was mostly an exploratory activity. Students put two pieces of tape down on the desk, pull them off, and then put them on the straw holders. These pieces of tape then repel each other. However, the tape is attracted to almost every other object in the classroom that is an insulator. Why? I love this kind of challenge on their inductive reasoning. I’d like to think that it helps develop their reasoning and isn’t just a reflection of their innate reasoning at this point in their brain development.
