How Do Resistors Affect Currents?
Learners explain resistors. In this electrical engineering activity, student investigate how resistors affect currents in a series and in a parallel circuit. Students will watch a clip from "Minds of Their Own," and then use learner.org to figure out how many different ways they can connect two light bulbs and a battery.

Insulators and Conductors
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.
3rd - 6th Science 19 Views 68 Downloads
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.
