Electricity and Circuits Unit

I have updated our Electricity and Circuits Unit, adding in new worksheets and quite a number of new hands-on activity ideas! This is such a fun unit because the kids can build so many different projects! In the first part of this unit we went over The parts of an atom Electric currents Conductors and insulators Parts of a light bulb Batteries We then spent several days, making various circuits!...

Electricity and Circuits STEM Unit

Our study of electricity and circuits was electrifying!!  Seriously, we all learned SO much in this unit and did over a dozen hands-on projects!  If your kids love STEM projects, you may enjoy our 30-page Electricity and Circuits Packet. My kids are currently 8, 11 and 13 and they couldn’t wait to dive into science each day while we were doing this unit! Some of the topics and terms we...

Electricity Unit: Atoms, Electrons and More! (Hands-On Activities)

As many of you know, we are doing an electricity and circuits unit. Today I thought I would share some of the hands-on activities we did as we started off this unit! We started off the year with a unit on the States of Matter. Then we went on to talk about the Physical and Chemical Properties of Matter.  We touched on conductivity (and insulators) briefly as physical properties, but...

STEM! Paper Circuits (and More!)

In this part of our Electricity and Circuits units, we had a lot of fun with Paper Circuits!! If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know how much we *LOVE* hands-on science and engineering!  We have been having such a great time with our electricity and circuits unit that I just had to come on briefly to share a snippet of what we’ve been doing.  (Normally, I wait...
