Electric Avenue: Parallel and Series CircuitsLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Can you infer the wiring diagram of a series of lights based on their behavior alone? Scholars work with multiple boxes of four lights. They must flip the switch and decide how the lights are wired. By applying their knowledge of...
Circuit Diagrams: Switching CircuitsLesson Planet
4th - 6th
Use a lab sheet on circuit diagrams in your electricity unit. Fifth graders draw two series circuits with diagrams, based on two examples. A science experiment prompts learners to use 3x5 cards to illustrate the way a series circuit works.
Series Circuits: ∆V=I•R CalculationsLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Better than some television series, parallel series circuits provide practice for calculations. Scholars work through a series of problems, each progressively more difficult. They apply knowledge of voltage calculations, resistors, and...
Circuits and the Flow of Electricity Lesson PlanLesson Planet
6th - 10th CCSS: Designed
I think I lost an electron. Are you sure? Yes, I'm positive! Starting with a hands-on demonstration and problem solving activity, young scientists define vocabulary related to circuitry and currents. Then they build their own circuits...
Circuit Analysis: Crash Course Physics #30Lesson Planet
11 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Teach the ins and outs of parallel and series circuits. Using Christmas lights as a reference, the video instructor analyzes both parallel and series circuits. She models calculations of both current and voltage to finish the 30th...
Magnetism and Electricity: Series and Parallel CircuitsLesson Planet
Fifth graders study parallel and series circuits. In 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...
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,...
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...
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...
