The Electricity Simulations Lab activity allows students to play five different computer simulations for an interactive lab experience. The simulations utilize a PHET simulation where students can analyze the effects of velocity or acceleration on an object as they try and guide the object through a maze. As a Science teacher it is difficult to find time to set up and tear down lab activities for every topic and electricity is difficult to do hands on labs for, with the exception of basic circuits.
I have set up the lab simulations so that it is linked to the PHET html versions (if available) of the simulation so that it is playable on devices such as laptops, desktops, ipads, chromebooks (which we use in my class), or other mobile devices. Students just scan the QR code at the top with their device and links them directly to the simulation. If they don't have a device to scan they can just enter the provided web address on a computer and then begin the simulation.
The five different simulations are:
-Balloons and Static Electricity
I hope you find this simulation helpful, Godspeed.
