Introduce basic concepts about electricity and circuits with this printable, hands-on activity set. Includes background info for teachers, so you can just print the pages and start the lessons with almost no prep! You can also just show the pages on a tablet, computer or phone screen. Each page has everything on it that you need to say and do with your student.
To maximize your use of this unit, you will want to get an inexpensive circuits kit for kids (like the one pictured on the instructions page in the download) for lesson 5, where you do some hands-on building.
*This unit is for students with at least a little bit of spoken language or communication skills: answering simple questions and filling in the blanks about the information in the lessons. I'm working on a unit for non-verbal students coming soon. If your student isn't quite ready for the higher level of language used in this activity, check out this blog post about using an electric circuits kit to teach communication and basic skills: http://positivelyautism.weebly.com/blog/using-electricitycircuits-to-teach-communication-academic-and-other-skills
