Over the last few weeks, fourth graders have been doing some inquiry around simple and series circuits. We began with the idea of a complete vs. incomplete circuit and then quickly went into investigations with insulative and conductive materials. I did trick them a bit during this investigation though, I had them test some conductive string to see if it could create a complete circuit. Isn´t technology amazing!
Students then had to create a series circuit and see which colors of lights could be illuminated together. Next, we plan on created illuminated wearables that will be showcased at our Maker Faire on March 20th. Stay tuned!
