The students were engaged in their inquiry into electricity this afternoon. They were given 2 challenges today. One was to create a complete circuit with two bulbs that used one pathway and another was to create a complete circuit with two bulbs that allowed for multiple pathways. From there, they added more light bulbs and made predictions as to what would happen and why it was happening.
1.) PARENTS - STUDENT LED CONFERENCES:
- Student led conferences will be held on March 7th and 8th. On both of these days, your child will be dismissed at 2pm.
- This is an opportunity for your child to share their work at school with you.
- Students will take you through their FreshGrade portfolios to show you some highlights and specific assessments.
- If you are unable to make it on either of those days, your child may also take you through their digital portfolios from home. Any specific questions can be addressed by email or you can set up a an alternative time to meet with me.
- Please be aware there will be multiple parents and students in the classroom at the same time and conferences will be 15 minutes each.

- Complete Questions from lesson 6.3. Review the lesson if you need.
- Mark your answers at home.
- Do all corrections at home. We will go over any challenging questions tomorrow.
3.) POST A RESPONSE:
- Today, you investigated different ways of making light bulbs work using different types of circuits.
- Click here and complete this online electrical challenge! Follow the instructions at the bottom of the link.
- After completing the challenge, answer this question: How does the brightness of the two lamps compare with the lamp on its own? What is your hypothesis for this?
- In addition to completing everything above, write about what you learned in Science today (at school and at home).
