About this activity: Separating salt and peper

Little Scientists at home logo

Static electricity is a difficult topic and concept to explain to young children. So don’t! Ask them what they think is happening, listen and ask questions. Stand back and let them form their own ideas on how this exploration works. Let them experiment themselves and make up their own ideas. Let the wonder begin.
