Gotta do electrical circuits virtually? Here’s how!

This activity directs students to experiment with the basics of circuitry, virtually. It works great when distance learning (its a Google doc worksheet) is necessary or as an introductory activity to a hands-on circuitry lab.

The worksheet guides students in making and analyzing circuits using this interactive seen in the video below.

Watch the video for a peek at how the virtual circuit builder works!

Here’s a peek (below) of the 2nd page of the activity worksheet – see the whole thing at this link.

Build Series & Parallel Circuits, Virtually!

With DISTANCE LEARNING I wasn’t able to do the electrical circuits lab with my wonderful 8th graders so I created a worksheet in Google doc to guide them through constructing circuits, digitally, using a free online circuit builder!

The worksheet guides students in making and analyzing circuits using this interactive.

Students (virtually) construct series and parallel circuits such as these:

Students learn about and measure resistance and voltage as they add resistors and other components to their circuits.
