Parallel Circuits - ∆V = I•R CalculationsLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Parallel circuits often provide less of a challenge for teens than parallel parking. An installment of a series on parallel electric circuits requires learners to solve increasingly difficult levels of calculations. Each level provides...
Magnetism and Electricity: Series and Parallel CircuitsLesson Planet
Fifth graders study parallel and series circuits. For this magnetism and electricity lesson, 5th graders use materials to create a light and draw a diagram of their working circuit. Students use additional materials to build a parallel...
V, R, and I in Parallel CircuitLesson Planet
10th - Higher Ed
In this V, R, and I in parallel circuits worksheet, students calculate the total current, total voltage, and total resistance. Students match the correct term with the correct definition. Students also label several diagrams of series...
Exploring Electricity - Four ActivitiesLesson Planet
4th - 6th
These are four classic activities used for instructing upper elementary electricians. The first involves experimenting with the Van de Graaff generator. The second is a series of hands-on experiences with static. In the third activity,...
Solar Kit Lesson #5 - Build a Simple AmmeterLesson Planet
5th - 9th
Emerging electricians build a simple ammeter for making measurements on an electric current. They test the placement of solar cells in both series and parallel circuits and examine the magnetic field produced by the movement of electrons...
Electricity. . . Understanding the Movement of ElectronsLesson Planet
7th - 12th
Here is a super simple slide show for illuminating physical science whizzes to the basics of electricity. These slides can be used as a note-taking guide to supplement your lecture. Topics covered include atomic theory, static and...
