Key Concepts: electricity, circuits, lemon battery, light, acids, series, inquiry, activity
Explore electricity circuits with this series from The Cool School Rap! There are four comics and teacher instructions in this lesson pack.
Begin with an engaging discovery comic designed to review electricity and engage readers in the subject matter. The next two comics cover the concepts behind building a working circuit and introduce the idea that certain metals can have a chemical reaction with acids in fruits. These reactions make it possible to use a lemon as a battery in a circuit. Finally, conclude the lesson with an inquiry activity exploring the electrical reactions other foods may create.
