  • step-by-step instructions for the teacher,
  • a game board template,
  • an electric symbol handout, and
  • BONUS slideshow for Drawing Electric Circuits

This lesson was created by a teacher/engineer writing team and includes a number of technical tips to aid teachers as they troubleshoot design problems.

BONUS: Say goodbye to messy research notebook sketches that depict electrical projects like a plate of spaghetti! The Drawing Electric Circuits slideshow invites students to visualize their electrical circuits in a new way. Using simple examples, this presentation guides students through the process of making electrical diagrams which includes FREE download includes an Electrical Symbol handout sized perfectly to fit in your students’ research notebooks.
