The electricity unit in fifth grade science is one of the most popular topics for students to explore. Safety protocols due to the pandemic made studying this unit a bit different than in years past.
One thing that didn't change, however, was the student's excitement when seeing their circuits light up! Fifth graders used LED lights and batteries to learn some basic electricity concepts: open and closed circuits, conductors and insulators, series and parallel circuits, and energy conversions. The electricity unit is complemented by an online circuit builder simulation that remote learners are using alongside the in-person learners.
