Electric Charges and Field Lines Activity


Both PRINT and DIGITAL versions!

Grades 7 and Up

In this electric charges and field lines activity, students “play” with static electricity charges and are challenged by an electric field game.

This is a straightforward 2 part worksheet (separated so they can be done individually) that guides students through 5 different online simulations (from two different websites) to explore the basics of electric charges and electric fields. Part One focuses on electric charges and Part Two focuses on electric field lines. The website is given for each simulation, along with specific instructions and analysis questions.

This is NOT an advanced analysis of electric charges or field lines – it covers the basics, perfectly suited to the intentions of NGSS MS-PS2-3 and MS-PS-2-5. Adobe Flash is NOT needed. Also, it does NOT need to be printed in color to be effective.
