Developing and using models Overview Over the past few day, my classes have suffered many absences due to weather, illnesses, and field trips. Today's lesson is heavy on notes and board work as I try to provide students with the right content background before proceeding. My goal is to help students understand the way that charges gain and lose energy in simple circuits in advance of an upcoming multi-day investigation of electric energy transformations.
Divide your class into groups. Give each group an electrical circuit kit to explore. Direct your students to create a series circuit and a parallel circuit. Instruct your students to take videos of their circuits in action. Have them record every trial they attempt. Have them show their progress in journals, writing and drawing what their circuits look like and do.
Independent working time 25 minutes On their own, have each student conduct research regarding the advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel circuits. Give your students access to computers or books that explain in more detail how circuits function.
Going back to their groups, have your students discuss the role of each circuit in different settings. Ask your students to brainstorm a list of related topics. Have them conduct independent investigations and create a presentation to share with the class.
Provide written research materials in a variety of reading levels. Have them refer to these materials while they are creating circuits in groups.
Technology integration Have your students use video cameras to document their process. Encourage them to use online resources to find information about series and parallel circuits. Show your students the correct way to make series and parallel circuits.
Discuss real world examples of where these circuits might be found.A lesson plan about series and parallel circuits by trhizza5/5(14). Winston Churchill in the Canadian Parliament, December by Yousuf Karsh.
