A visually appealing PowerPoint designed to introduce simple electrical circuits to your students. The PowerPoint covers simple circuit diagrams, circuit symbols, series and parallel circuits and specialist circuits such as domestic lighting, safety switches, two-way switches and Christmas tree lights.
Light Circuits: Depending on the grade level of the students, you can have them build a very simple circuit or a very complex circuit with both series and parallel circuits combined. For my students I have them use file folders in order to design and build a series on one side, then a parallel on the other with certain parameters for the switches. The students have an amazing time and there is always 100% participation and together we saved those lights from a trip to the landfill!
