1.Interactive Notebook Matching:
This page is made to be printed off and then cut to fit into a student’s science interactive notebook. This way the students will have all the definition right there with them when they are doing other activities in class regarding electricity.
2. Matching worksheet
The 2nd page is the same matching for the interactive notebook but it’s in the form of a worksheet (in case you don’t do interactive note books in your class)
3. Research Edison Timeline
The 3rd page is a list of questions students can use to help them research about Thomas Edison. They will use the information that they have researched to then create a timeline of Edison’s life. This is a great way to have cross-curricular lesson with Science and History.
**There are some great options to have students make the timelines online (instead of paper) **
The 4th page is a review sheet that students can use to study for the test. This can be done in groups or pairs, but I’ve found that the students love doing it as a game. Some games that I have done are:
This 2 page test has a variety of types of questions to help determine if students have comprehended the materials: Short answer, multiple choice, Diagrams, matching,
6. AC vs DC Clock Survey
This “lab” is a way to get students looking at all the different types of electrical devices in a classroom. Students will take a survey of the types of clocks in the classroom and other classrooms (if that’s possible/ allowed at your school) This activity involves some basic math as well to calculate averages and percentages.
