Circuit Search

High schoolers use investigation and comparison to gain an understanding of series and parallel circuits. They are asked:"What are series and parallel circuits?" They discuss their responses and draw an example of each type of circuit. Students arrange themselves in a series circuit by joining wrists or hands. One student from each side of the series circuit hold a lead to the AC generator.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
