Help your students become makers and creators at home and at school by adding circulating maker / craft kits to your school or classroom library! This zip file includes 55 pages of materials to create 8 paper circuit maker or craft kits that can be checked out by students. Using the included Interactive Nursery Rhyme Pages and Circuit Diagrams from my paper circuits center product, students will make a circuit using coin batteries, copper tape, LED lights and other electronic components.
When using the kit at home, parents and students are given the opportunity to take photos and email them to the teacher or librarian to post to social media. It’s a great way to connect home and school learning! Download the preview for full description of product contents.

Next Generation Science Standards Addressed:
1-PS4-1. Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
4-PS3-2. Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

If you aren’t familiar with the maker movement or makerspaces (also called DIY spaces or hackerspaces), I’d recommend downloading the preview and doing your own research on makerspaces and the Maker Faire. I’ve found the "Makerspace Playbook" by Make: Magazine to be very helpful.
