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!
