Paper Circuits

Paper circuits are an exciting way for students to learn how electrical circuits work. This kit includes 3mm LEDs in assorted colors, copper tape, 3-volt coin cell batteries and Activity Instructions. There are enough supplies for 30 students to create a closed circuit, open circuit, parallel circuit, and a series circuit. The concepts learned in this activity are a springboard for more complicated electrical projects such as turning a painting into an interactive piece of art, gamifying a poster, sewing circuits or building a prototype. If you are looking for a more complex kit check out the Hen House Prototype

    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!
