Electric Circuits


This module is all about exploring basic electric circuits. Through the series of activities, students engage in the science and engineering practice of making observations as they use batteries, wires, small light bulbs and light bulb holders to explore the phenomenon of electricity and learn the difference between an open circuit and a closed circuit.
