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...

Get Connected with Ohm's Law
Ideal for your electricity unit, especially with middle schoolers, this lesson gets engineers using multimeters in electrical circuits to explore the relationships among voltage, current, and resistance. Older learners may even plot data...

The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this lesson 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...

Circuit Construction Kit (AC+DC)
Can electricity flow through a paper clip? Pupils answer this question by creating circuits of their own. They can manipulate a number of parts — number of wires, resistors, batteries, light bulbs, switches, items from a grab bag such as...
