What is included?
The PDF file contains instructions and worksheets for four hands on experiments:
Two more activities:
Atom Action - make models on atoms
Concentration Station - matching game of key terms
Along with the detailed instructions (includes pictures), I have a one page QR Code sheet that has internet links to facts, videos, games, and quizzes about electricity. QR codes are like bar codes that can be scanned with an iphone, ipad, etc, anything that has a QR reader application. But I also included the web addresses as well.
