This article describes an interesting activity to help preschoolers explore and experience static electricity. They will not understand the scientific principles behind static electricity but they can explore its effects with this simple bottle activity. As they grow older, this experience will give them a background and basis to understand the more advanced science behind electricity. Preschoolers can experience science at their level and are natural learners that need to be encouraged to explore their world which is full of science.
