Featured in PASCO’s Elementary School Science Teacher Guide
Features 29 inquiry based labs designed for elementary students and coordinated with the standards for life, earth and physical sciences.
Use a voltage sensor to test the conductivity of different materials.
To understand this content, students:
- Build simple series and parallel circuits using AA-cell batteries and light bulbs.
- Compare the brightness of two bulbs in a simple series circuit to the brightness of two bulbs in a simple parallel circuit.
- Measure the voltage being applied to the light bulbs in each circuit.
- Relate the brightness of the light in their circuits to the voltage and the type of circuit.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to safely measure voltage and current simultaneously without overloading the sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
AA-cell battery - 2
Miniature holiday light bulbs with stripped wire ends - 2
Masking tape, ~30 cm
Wide rubber band
Alligator clip or other pieces of wire with stripped ends - 2
The Associated Bundle:
This bundle contains the probeware needed to perform all 25 lab activities in the Elementary School Introductory Science Experiments.
