Bright lights as students build electric circuits

Grade 6 students had their first hands-on experience in building electric circuits as part of their Electricity and Energy transformations unit. They have just finished learning about the two types of electric circuits (series and parallel circuits) and the different components of a basic electric circuit. They also had some practice in drawing circuit diagrams.

The next step was to put this experience into action. They got to build multiple circuits and in the process, they have also learnt how to identify the problem systematically in case if the circuit does not perform the way it was expected to do. The activity was a nice mixture of fun and learning.
