Class Experience

Students will learn the basic parts of an electrical circuit by creating a light-up LED Holiday card. 
For the last four years I have taught 7th and 8th grade science and math, and I have helped students explore the different fields of science including electrical circuits. Electrical circuits are a great way to learn about the differences between potential and kinetic energy. Furthermore, they can lead to a discussion about magnetism and atoms by looking at how positive and negative charges work in these systems. I have created these LED circuit cards with students in the past, and they have had such a blast experimenting with the materials in order to actually make their card light up. 
Students will need to purchase and/or find the following materials before class. (I have attached links to materials that may be harder to locate.) 1. Computer paper printed with Holiday card images (PDFs provided by teacher) 2. Colored pencils, crayons, or markers 3. Scissors 4. Regular pencil 5. Copper tape - 6. 5mm LEDs (any color) - 7. Coin battery - 8. Clear tape 9. Ruler
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
