Series and Parallel Circuits + Digital Science ⭐ When looking for electric circuits worksheets for upper elementary science class, I found most either too basic or completely too wordy. So, I compiled the "must know" information in the most straightforward way I could. This take home book covers series and parallel circuits. This resource is also great for distance learning because it is a printable packet that can easily be used in a home setting.

Electric current, conductors, insulators, electromagnets, & how magnets generate electricity are covered within this resource.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Deborah K. said, “This was a lifesaver as we learned about electricity and circuits.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Emily B. said, "I used this with my Science Olympiad group! It was easy for me to plan and the kids were really engaged!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Karri B. said, "Just started homeschool this year. This helped me understand the material, so I could successfully teach it to my kids!!! Thanks so much! "


✦✦✦ This resource can now be assigned as a standard no prep printable -OR- as an interactive distance learning resource through Google Classroom! ✦✦✦


This pack includes:

~ Fact books: 2 options (11 half sheets)

*One is a standard take home book.

* One has blank spaces.

~ KWL worksheet: Know, Want to Know, Learned

~ Fact / Opinion Worksheet & Answer key

Teaching Tips:

We complete the KWL: know and want to know sections before I read them the fact book.

Then, I like to read the standard version book to the class using our elmo.

I pass out the books with the blank spaces, and we re-read as a class, and fill in the missing words to help with comprehension.

Finally, I have them complete the fact vs opinion worksheet and their KWL charts. (The fact vs opinion sheet would also work great as homework, and review if you talk about it as a class the next day.)
