Day 68

As a student, I can’t say I ever truly understood electricity.  To be honest, I was slightly dreading teaching this unit for fear of teaching my students as poorly as I was taught in this area.  However, I think I know the problem.  I never ‘played’ with it!  Who doesn’t love to have a science lab?  Safety first, learning second, these fourth graders experimented with closed and open circuits, conductors and insulators and real world application to using a light switch.  We also tried using a banana as conductor- do you think it worked? Why or why not?
