This link is about a great lesson plan dealing with electricity that a teacher can perform for the class. As I was reading it, I thought this was a great experiment for students to complete in class. This would be an activity to perform in class before explaining electrical circuits. It gives the students an ability to experiment, hypothesize, and figure out how to create electric circuits with supplies given. And if failed, students can learn about how electric circuits work and its importance to electricity and the big idea. The young Einsteins of the classroom have the ability to get some hands-on experience with simple batteries as the powers up his very own miniature light.
Electricity – Light it up like Christmas!
