What are the two forms of electricity? Static and current electricity.

What do the protons electrons and neutrons do? The protons and neutrons stay clumped together in the centre of the atom while the electrons move around the outside.
What is in a balanced atom? In a balanced atom the number of protons equal the number of electrons.
What happens when the electrons move to a different atom? The atom becomes positively charged.
What happens to the atom that has more electrons? The atom becomes negatively charged.
How do atoms rebalance themselves? As soon as they can they will "jump" to another atom to rebalance themselves.
What happens when they don't jump soon enough? The electrons will eventually fade into the atmosphere.
What happens when you rub silk against a balloon? The electrons will move from the silk to the balloon. Then the balloon becomes negatively charged and the silk becomes positively charged.
