It’s Electric!

Last week, we began our study of electricity, circuits, heat, and other related items.  Our first activity for the chapter was an introduction to circuits.  Using just wire, a battery, and a small lightbulb, students in 4R discovered what it takes for electricity to flow.

They weren’t really given any direction, except “Make the bulb light”…this proved frustrating, but also helped them to work hard to try and discover on their own!

Here are some pictures of our investigation:

Electric currents were never so fun!  Good times in 4R.
