Science concept: series and parallel circuits
For this science lab and project, students are asked to construct, describe, diagram, compare, and contrast both open/closed series and parallel circuits. They will need access to books, textbook, internet, or other in order to research information. Basic electric circuit building materials are also needed.
Students work both individually and in groups. Individually, students do several activities in science journal or on paper. In groups, students create a poster and construct the different circuits.
Scoring rubrics and expectations are included for both group activities.
