Timmy Discovers Static Electricity
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Timmy shuffled his feet along the carpet, grinning widely as he looked toward his sister, Bethany. She was completely unaware of his intentions as she sat on the couch reading.
2 "Zap!" Timothy roared, as he touched his sister's arm and gave her a shock of static electricity.
3 "Ouch!" Bethany cried. "That hurt! Mom!"
4 Timothy ran off laughing at the chaos he had caused. Mom came into the room to check on the commotion.
5 "What's wrong?" Mom asked.
6 "Timmy zapped me," Bethany said.
7 "How did he do that?" asked Mom.
8 "I don't know. He came running up to me, and when he touched me, I got zapped!" Bethany replied.
9 "Timothy!" Mom called to her son.
10 Timmy walked into the room smiling sheepishly. "Yes, Mom?"
11 "What did you do to your sister?" Mom asked.
