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!
