FREE: A challenging circuit inquiry activity. Students need to draw a simple circuit based on 7 clues. I.e., If light bulb 1 is unscrewed, bulb 2, 3 and 4 stay on, etc. Includes an answer key. Great addition to any electricity unit as it can be used to teach circuit diagrams as well as review at the end of a unit. Can be used in any grade level that teaches electricity.

Mystery Circuit Challenge - a simple circuit inquiry activity

Fun, easy way to teach the scientific method. "Do taller children have bigger feet then smaller children?" In the picture students collected their data (drew a bar the size of their feet) and used a ruler to measure their graph and record their results.

I love this idea of labeling classroom items with information about science! The natural world is all around us, so let's point it out and use it as a motivation for kids to learn science concepts. MM

"An object generally has the same number of positive and negative charges. An object can lose negative charges and thus become positively charged. Try rubbing a balloon(s) with a piece of wool. This will remove negative charges from the wool and add them to the balloon(s) making the balloon(s) negatively charged."- Learning Ideas K-8
