Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

Welcome to Class - Week 20- 2018-2019

NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR CLASSROOM – WEEK 20

During Week 20 in the National Day Calendar Classroom, we take a look at how static electricity affects our lives. National Static Electricity Day dedicates an entire day in January because it’s excellent time to study and produce static electricity.  

Try one or all the experiments in the video below. Also, visit the archive, print the word search and crossword puzzles.  

Sharing on social media isn’t required, learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
