Solar Kit Lesson #6: Solar-Powered Battery Charger

In a previous lesson, learners build an ammeter. That ammeter, or a pre-made one, is required in order to carry out this lesson. The objective is for lab groups to design a way to connect solar cells that can recharge a battery. Basic concepts are presented in a worksheet, and then learners are turned loose for the inquisition. Add this electricity lesson as an enrichment for more eager upper elementary or middle school scientists.

I love Lesson Planet because it connects me to great websites that have a wealth of information for myself and students. For example, I recently found two great history websites that have a huge amount of pictures--a great place for my foreign language students who need visual aids to comprehend American history. I love Lesson Planet because the lessons are often easy to adapt for a variety of learners.
