Product Description
This is a crazy fun project that I did with my 6th grade students after we had learned about series and parallel circuits, as well as insulation/conductors and thermal energy transfer. My students built somewhat insulated mini houses (in a diorama style) with parallel and series circuits, and working household switches. Your students can show you what they know while also having a blast and being actual architects and builders themselves. They are synthesizing all that they know about these things, working together in groups, and creating their own house. Its awesome!

I've included in this file everything you would need to get this project started in your classroom - a smart board file that explains the project to your students, a rubric for grading, and my explanation of everything included in the rubric document. I've explained where I got my supplies and how I did this project in my own classroom.
