This is not
a normal nursery rhyme project! These 7 printable nursery rhymes include both the nursery rhyme pages and electronic circuit pages with instructions for teachers and students to make each page interactive using copper tape, LED lights, a beeping buzzer, and a wiggling vibration motor. Please note: This product is also available in BLACKLINE
This product could be used in a couple ways:
★ As an electricity/makerspace project or center
- Students can choose 1 nursery rhyme page to complete as a first makerspace project or exploratory science center. The power needed for these circuits is only one 3-volt coin battery, so there is almost no danger of getting hurt with these electronic parts, as long as your students know not to swallow them.
★ Trying your first electronics project
- Learn to design and create circuits yourself using copper tape, LED lights, a piezo buzzer, a vibration motor, and a programmable micro-controller. No coding experience needed, I promise!
