Description

This digital GOOGLE DOCS electricity activity allows students to experiment with the basics of circuitry, virtually. The worksheet provides a structured format for students to get the most from the interactive PhET website plus additional provided websites to gather information to answer questions. Use for distance learning or as an introductory activity before a hands-on circuitry lab.

Topics Covered in this Activity:

  • Electrical current
  • Series and parallel circuits
  • Resistance
  • Voltage
  • Amperes

Teacher Notes:

  • Students will use the PhET website for the activity plus additional provided websites to gather information to answer questions.
  • Answer key and teacher tips are included.
  • A link to the Google Doc student sheet is provided in the PDF you'll download from TPT.

Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects). Examples of phenomena at the macroscopic scale could include the conversion of kinetic energy to thermal energy, the energy stored due to position of an object above the earth, and the energy stored between two electrically-charged plates. Examples of models could include diagrams, drawings, descriptions, and computer simulations.
