Unit 1: Why do some clothes stick together when they come out of the dryer? This is the first of four units that focus on answering a driving question designed to engage students in the learning goal and help them relate and build connections among ideas developed throughout the unit. Each unit is made up of a series of investigations, which consist of several activities. In this unit, students develop a model of electric interactions to explain electrostatic phenomena. To develop and revise their models, students collect evidence related to how charged objects interact with other objects. They develop a particulate model of materials and a model of atomic structure to start building an understanding of the mechanism of charging objects.

I am wondering how to access the student handouts. I can only find teaching notes.

Hi Nalani, The Interactions Curriculum Navigation document says: "What is not included in the folder are the pre and post assessments developed for each unit, and access to download student handouts (for paper/pencil implementation) or provide student access to online materials (for one-to-one computer classrooms). You can access these materials by making a teacher account at https://learn.concord.org/interactions." All curricular materials are free for teachers to implement in their classes. Hope that helps!
