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.
