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.
Please do not upload these to the internet, as students will find them and harm their learning and that of my students. If you would like me to write a customized lab for you, please email me. Thanks for looking.
