Circuits - upper primary

This collection of 11 digital curriculum resources is organised in three categories - types of circuits; circuit applications; and conductors and insulators. Interactive learning objects enable students to build and manipulate simple series and parallel electric circuits. Students investigate how current flows, effects ...

Basic electric circuits part 1: series and parallel circuits - practical activity

In this practical activity, students investigate and compare series and parallel circuits. This experiment is the first of three experiments on basic electric circuits; in the second, students measure current in series and parallel circuits, and in the third, students measure voltage in series and parallel circuits. The ...

Energy resources: batteries part 2: connecting batteries in series and in parallel - practical activity

In this practical activity, students measure and compare the voltage, current and power delivered by batteries connected in series and in parallel. This experiment is the second of four experiments on energy resources; in the first, students measure the electrical power delivered by a single battery, in the third they measure ...
