Using this guided inquiry lab from my TpT store your students will gain an in depth understanding of the difference between resistors in series circuits and resistors in parallel circuits. I have done these activities with my students many times and they always find them fun and engaging. The best part is that your students won't even know they are learning as they complete the included inquiry-based laboratory assignment sheet. The PhET Circuit Construction Kit: DC simulation can be found at th

Save time while still keeping students engaged! These 6 resources are ready to post to Google Classroom for your students to experiment with building circuits. These simluations are a great way to reach your kinesthetic learners who may not thrive with distance learning. This is a way to engage students in authentic learning in science labs with limited equipment. They can be printed out and used as a worksheet too!Specific Learning Outcomes:Demonstrate that a continuous loop of conducting mater
This inquiry lab takes students through the process of building different types of circuits in the Phet Circuit Construction Kit: DC only. Students will build series and parallel circuits and explore the differences between them. They will also be able to explore their own circuits and there is an extension for building a series-parallel circuit as well.UPDATE FEB 1, 2022 - NOW WITH ANSWER KEY! If you have previously purchased this resource, I have finally gotten around to adding the answer key.

This digital GOOGLE DOCS electricity activity allows students to experiment with the basics of circuitry, virtually. The worksheet provides a structured format for students to get the most from the interactive PhET website plus additional provided websites to gather information to answer questions. Use for distance learning or as an introductory activity before a hands-on circuitry lab.Topics Covered in this Activity:Electrical currentSeries and parallel circuitsResistanceVoltageAmperesTeacher
[See the Preview Video]Fully EditableThis is a simple inquiry-based lab that I love to give students as an intro to Energy and Work. Students will figure out for themselves conceptual problems involving Circuits. They will get the basic idea of how Circuits in Series and Circuits in Parallel work. Lastly, the last page of the lab also gives students an opportunity to create their own circuit, which they love, and they get to learn more through creating and playing.This is an NGSS-aligned lesson.
This Circuit Kit: DC - SERIES AND PARALLEL PhET - Google Form Worksheet is used to guide and assess students as they learn about basic circuits (great for distance learning). Students will experiment with the PhET simulation and learn about the differences between SERIES and PARALLEL circuits. Students experiment with wires, resistors, batteries, and more to understand the components in a circuit. Students will also build a series and parallel circuit to measure the voltage and current under dif
Student favorite series! The Currents & Circuits 1 PhET Lab is a fun introductory investigation lesson to electric currents, voltage and the types of circuits. Students watch video clips and read prompts to take notes over electric currents, circuits, parts of electrical circuits, open & closed circuits, series & parallel circuits. Following conceptual input, students PREDICT which circuits would light a lightbulb, then TEST their hypotheses' by building the circuit examples using th
The Currents & Circuits "Series" is a line of 2 consecutive virtual PhET lab circuit building lessons, with 2 self grading google forms, supplementary lab guides, vocabulary notes and interactive handouts. Everything is needed for learning input with notes, investigations, assessment and an extension. By the end of the sequence, students will be able to differentiate types of circuits and identify factors that affect the strength of electric current. Student favorite! In currents & Circu
This PhET Lab guide can be completed digitally as an interactive handout with drag and drop elements or printed. Students are instructed how to build a baseline circuit to compare it to a tester circuit. Then, use the PhET simulation and lab guide to set up their circuits to answer the 4 testable questions provided: "How does [voltage, length of wire, type of material & wire diameter] affect the strength of electric current?" (NGSS PS2-3) Ask questions about data to determine the factors tha
This Circuit Kit: DC - INTRO PhET - Google Form Worksheet is used to guide and assess students as they learn about basic circuits. Students will experiment with the PhET simulation and see the key components in a circuit. Students experiment with wires, resistors, batteries, and more to understand the components in a circuit. Students will also learn the symbols used in a schematic diagram and the meaning of the terms open vs closed circuit, current, resistance, and voltage. There are no calcula
In this PhET simulation students will use the simple circuits toolkit to build series, parallel and complex circuits and measure current and potential at various points in the circuit. I use this before my real-life lab with Snap Circuits. More advanced students can move on and use capacitors and AC voltage sources.Materials needed: PhET website.Reformatted for 2022 as an editable Google Doc!Older PDF version is included in the G-Drive directory.KEY INCLUDED in G-Drive directory.

This was an easy lab that I did with my conceptual physics students to have them explore the properties of series and parallel circuits using the PHET circuit building kit online. It also helped them learn how to build circuits as well and understand the mechanics of circuits. I will include the original Microsoft word file if you want to modify it. Have fun! This is an activity that requires little to no prep; just making sure that students have their Chromebooks or some other type of computer.
