Your students will love this fantastic pack of science activities, ideal for supporting teaching of electricity! Included are seven activities:
Students identify items that use electricity and those that do not
Students predict whether the circuits will light the bulb. They build the circuits to test their predictions.
Students sort the images into those that are electrical conductors and those that are electrical insulators
Students investigate what happens to a bulb in a circuit as more batteries are added.
Students design their own switch to turn a bulb on and off in a series circuit.
Students describe why the images of electrical hazards are potentially dangerous
Students match the topic vocabulary to its definitions.
Included are detailed, clear instructions on how to set up the activities. Also included is a KWL (what I know already, what I would like to know and what I learned) for student to complete prior and after the unit.
Please note: Some of the activities require additional resources. These include wires, bulbs, batteries, selection of electrical conductors and insulators and materials for building a switch (paper clips, popsicle sticks, tin foil, clothes pegs etc).
