A battery to provide energy...check!
A load to receive and transform the energy...check!
Creating the circuit and getting it to transform electricity to light for the first time...PRICELESS!
Here 3rd graders are creating and testing circuits. While they explore the basic set-up for a simple circuit, they will become circuitry experts before designing their own switches to turn the circuits on and off. Why transform energy when we don't need to?
They will explore materials that are conductors and insulators, different arrangements of the pathways in a circuit (series and parallel), and different transformations of energy by using light bulbs, buzzers, and motors (light, sound, and mechanical energy).
