Students explore electrical energy. In this electricity lesson plan, students design and build a large circuit in order to determine whether circuit size correlates with the light of a bulb.
Students explore the basics of electricity using common everyday items as well as demonstrate how parallel and series circuits can be used in electronics and electrical devices. They explore how common items in their world can be wired efficiently and effectively.
Young scholars explore electrical resistance through various experiments. For this physics lesson, students calculate resistance using a mathematical formula. They explain how colors identify the resistance value of a resistor.
Students explore electronic communication, the Morse Code system, and text messaging, build a simple circuit to send messages to one another, and explore the impact of electrical communications on society.
Students examine how electric circuits are controlled with a switch. They incorporate a switch into a battery/bulb circuit. They design and create their own switches using everyday materials.
In a classic activity, emerging electricians test various objects for electrical conductivity in a circuit. Each group constructs a simple circuit by following a diagram. Predictions are made and objects are inserted into the circuit, then sorted as conductors or insulators. 
In this resistors learning exercise, students answer 11 questions about resistors, their functions, symbols used to represent them, and they calculate resistance values.
In this electricity worksheet, students answer 17 multiple choice questions about electricity, how it is measured, the types of currents, the types of meters and circuits. Students also answer multiple choice questions about protein synthesis in the cell and the processes of transcription and translation.
Fourth graders experiment to find out how to light a bulb with simple materials. They make predictions if a light bulb set-up could work and gain knowledge to tell the difference between an open and closed circuit. They also figure out what resistors and conductors are and give examples of each.
Students study the discovery of the electron and how it led to other inventions and discoveries concerning electrical current. They observe several demonstrations concerning electricity. In one activity, they determine whether or not a galvanometer is a reliable lie detector test.
Students examine how materials oppose the flow of an electrical current.  In this resistivity lesson students complete several experiments on the differences between resistance and resistivity.

Students assess how patterns, functions and algebra can assist NASA engineers design new ways of propelling spacecrafts. They explore how electricity and magnetism are replacing the fuel-consuming rocket propulsion. Electromagnetism is introduced in depth within this lesson plan.
Students improve their science skills by designing an experiment for the relationship between electricity and magnetism. In this science skills instructional activity, students discuss the scientific method and use the given materials to complete an experiment to learn about variables and controls groups. Students complete the experiment to learn about the relationship between electricity and magnetism.
Electricians draw four different circuits and answer questions about the resistance, voltage drop, and current at different points in each. Completing this worksheet will help make sure that your class is understanding what is happening throughout an electric circuit. The formatting isn't perfect, but the problems are relevant. Assign this as homework.
This wave and electromagnetism assignment is so thorough, it could be used as a unit exam. The first section of it covers wave concepts. The next section addresses static electricity. There is a section that deals with electric circuits. Finally, the activity finishes off with magnetism, specifically electromagnetic induction. Though many of the questions require problem solving and computation, the answers are presented as multiple choice. Neat diagrams are included in many of the questions.
In this electricity worksheet, students are assessed given 29 schematics and a competency for each schematic. They find either the conditions found in each schematic, the parameters of the schematic or give an analysis of the schematic depending on what information is given.
