Testing Parallel and Series Circuits

on December 6, 2012

This week we used our snap circuits to experiment with both parallel circuits and series circuits.   Students also had another chance to experiment with the flying disk!

‘Tis the season for holiday lights.  What a great time to investigate electricity and circuits.  We first made a series circuit.  Students were challenged to try to make the dim lights of a series circuit grow brighter.   We found out the advantages of a parallel circuit when one light bulb is removed from the circuit.
