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!
Great resource for studying black history or inventors. Garrett Morgan is known for inventing the precursor to the yellow wait light. Students make their own stop lights on a triangular prism and fill the other two sides with information. Cute craft - looks easy!
This alphabet book is a great way to introduce the alphabet during the first weeks of school. Introduce a letter a day and complete the craft page that helps reinforce the letter. Keep them together and present each student with their very own book at the end! So fun!
