Paper Circuits

Paper circuits are an exciting way for students to learn how electrical circuits work. The concepts learned in this activity are a springboard for more complicated electrical projects such as sewing circuits and building prototypes controlled by Arduino boards. Kit includes 3mm LEDs, copper tape, 3-volt coin cell batteries and worksheet masters. Enough supplies for 30 students.

    Excellent Introductory Lesson

    Posted by Madison Hall on Apr 26th 2019

    I use have used this activity with 4 separate classes and each time it has been a success. My students love it and it really helps them get a basic understanding of power and how circuits work. My only complaint is that the lesson only calls for 5 lights but there are 6 lights that need to be powered on the assignment. Students will usually take apart a different circuit to finish the last one. I would definitely recommend this product!
