This collection of hands-on experiments will really excite and ignite your students. Easy to set up lesson.
How can I use this product?
These are great science centers for partners or small groups.
What is included?
The PDF file contains instructions and worksheets for four experiments:
1. Make a light bulb light with a battery and a paper clip. (EUREKA Light Kit)
2. Make two light bulbs light. (EUREKA! EUREKA!)
3. Make a quiz circuit board.
4. Test whether an item is a conductor or insulator.
Along with the detailed instructions (includes pictures), I have a one page QR Code sheet that has internet links to facts, videos, games, and quizzes about electricity. QR codes are like bar codes that can be scanned with an iphone, ipad, etc, anything that has a QR reader application. But I also included the web addresses as well.
Materials needed for all activities:
Jumbo paper clip
Around 6 copper thin wires around 10 inches long with ends stripped
In a small container: paper clip, tape, pencil, string, ruler, fabric scrap, cotton ball, marble, ruler, paper, random items to test whether conductor/insulator
Optional, but really nice to have: battery holder, light bulb holder
Optional: set of mini Christmas lights, small snack baggies

6 pages of instructions with pictures
4 pages of worksheets with answers
2 pages of internet links for extension or further research (web addresses and QR codes)
