Incorporate TECHNOLOGY into your next electricity lesson with this PRINT & GO virtual lab activity and web-quest (with answer key). This activity gives students the opportunity to practice building simple series and parallel circuits via an online virtual lab. No set-up required! Just print and go.
This lab is perfect for distance learning, flipped classrooms & online courses and includes a printable version as well as a digital Google Slides version.
This activity takes students to 3 websites. For the first two sites, I have provided questions that students will answer by reading through the content provided on the site. The third site is an interactive virtual lab where students will practice building series and parallel circuits and manipulating them in a cause and effect fashion. Students will also be able to observe the relationship between resistance, current, and voltage and manipulate the circuits to visualize what happens to one component if another is altered. I have provided questions and a checklist that will guide students through this virtual lab while assessing student understanding as they progress. I find this activity to be extremely beneficial in my own classroom as I teach my electricity unit!
This activity can be used as an introduction, review, reinforcement, or as a sub activity.
