Your students will build their own electronic circuit “review” board to test thier fellow classmates, and see how much they know about energy transformation and the conduction and flow of electricity! My students love this activity! A fun creative hands-on way to review standards SC.5.P.11.1 and SC.5.P.11.2. Students will create their own circuit board using inexpensive materials, most of which you already have in your classroom! You can chose which vocabulary you want them to review; energy transformations or electrical circuits!
This lesson plans includes detailed directions with visual aids; diagrams and photos. It contains a template for their vocabulary words and a rubric for self and group evaluation. It also has discussion questions designed to make sure they can “communicate” their knowledge about how and why their circuit board worked, using vocabulary words such as conductor and insulator.
