Solar Kit Lesson #5 - Build a Simple Ammeter

Emerging electricians build a simple ammeter for making measurements on an electric current. They test the placement of solar cells in both series and parallel circuits and examine the magnetic field produced by the movement of electrons through a wire. As long as you can obtain the materials required for this investigation, you will find everything else you need included in write-up: preparation procedures, background information, tips for assessment, and lab sheets for learners.

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!
