Tired of boring worksheets that aren’t worth the paper they are printed on? How about a STEM project that is stimulating and applicable to the electricity lessons you are already teaching? Use this lesson plan to beef up your existing lessons, introduce electricity, or as a culminating activity.
This activity is a one-day project that will guide your students to discussion and knowledge far beyond the lesson. I’ve used this project for 17 years and it has never come up short.
Students will create a simple flashlight using common everyday household items. Creativity will flourish as students work in pairs to design a product that functions like a flashlight.
With simple instructions, this activity will impress, students, parents, principals, and other teachers. Can you say, “Teacher of the Year?”
