Hands-On Science - Investigating Electricity
Last week, I did a post on investigating Static Electricity . If you missed that post you can view it here . Current Electricity For today, I put together some posts with activities to help you teach about Current Electricity : Electric Circuits, Series Circuits, and Parallel Circuits . These are the lessons where the students will get to light those mini-light bulbs. Besides using the supplies usually found in the science kits, everyone should wear safety goggles and safety gloves. The kids love to put on the safety equipment. It makes them feel like real scientists and that these will be very special lessons! :) To go to each blog post, just click on the links below.
