The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this activity on the path of least resistance, or rather, on conductors and insulators. Using two types of modeling dough, one that conducts and one that insulates, young electrical engineers construct...

Circuits and the Flow of Electricity Lesson Plan
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...
