Electricity Project

Due on May 17th, 2017

The fourth grade science class will be starting a new chapter on electricity.  Students will need to build a simple series circuit.  Your circuit could be as simple or complex as you would like, but you need to be able to explain it.  This project will help students learn the basic concepts of electricity and electrical circuits.  Students will build a light circuit powered by a battery.  The projects should be mounted on a small piece of wood or on a sturdy piece of cardboard. Snap circuit kits are not allowed to be used for this project.  Be creative!
