Students investigate the concept of voltage and electricity. They differentiate between an insulator and a conductor in the context of using electrical safety with the help of a doll house. Then students pretend the doll lives in a real house and what kind of practices she should use for safety.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
