Building a Basic Series Circuit

This Building a Basic Series Circuit lesson plan also includes:

Make science a fully accessible subject for your learners with visual impairments. They'll use tactile models to explore the nature of basic electrical circuits. Template board, wires, batteries, and Velcro are used to construct the model; switches and a paper fan are used to convey how circuitry works. The student will flip the switch, follow the circuit with his hands, and then feel as the fan shows the electricity working.
