The Electric Field Toolkit provides teachers with high-quality, standards-based resources for designing lesson plans and units that address concepts associated with the electric field concept, electric field mathematics, and electric field lines. The Toolkit allows a teacher to select from among trusted resources that target specific learning objectives and national standards. Such resources include interactive simulations, videos, animations, demonstration ideas, interactive questioning modules, and hands-on labs. The Toolkit is supported by Lesson 4 of the Static Electricity Chapter at The Physics Classroom Tutorial.
Each toolkit can be viewed in three different ways.
