Students develop a basis for understanding electricity by exploring its properties in simple circuits. They start by sharing what they already know and what they would like to know about electricity. They are given an opportunity to use batteries, wire, bulbs, and motors to explore the concept of a complete circuit.
Writing is an integral part of learning science in the Insights curriculum, and a critical skill used by scientists. One of the most important tools of the scientist is the science notebook. In this notebook, students will record questions and predictions; observations and data; and interpretations and conclusions. Students may also use this notebook for informal sketches, notes, and reflections on work.
