This inquiry-based lesson plan is intended to be used in tandem with the PhET Electric Field Hockey simulation.  Students place electric charges on a simulated ice field to guide a hockey puck into a goal.   As they investigate charge interaction, the teacher integrates vector addition and free-body diagrams to help students understand strength and direction of the electric field around a charged body.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.4, Java WebStart of Java.
