Edison etc.

This activity is best done on a dry day.  Using a balloon, you can steal loose electrons from a person’s hair by rubbing the balloon on their hair.  This creates a negative charge on the balloon.  As with magnets, opposite charges attract and like charges repel.  A series of investigations can be done using the negatively charged balloon.  Prior experiences with magnets are recommended.
