In this engaging lab students will use Elenco's Snap Circuits to assemble simple and complex circuits and measure current and potential at several points. Students will then be asked to draw conclusions about how changes in the circuit affect potential, current, and power in a circuit. This lab takes two or three class days, but students may want additional time to play with the circuit kits.
Materials needed: Elenco's Snap Circuits Kit, purchasable on amazon, toy stores, and from science supply catalogs, multimeters or voltage and current probes, AA batteries.
Please do not upload these to the internet, as students will find them and harm their learning and that of my students. If you would like me to write a customized lab for you, please email me. Thanks for looking.
