In addition to this, they also connected up to three bulbs in each type of circuit. They disconnected some to see what effect it would have on the rest of the circuit. They discovered that in a series circuit, all of the bulbs would go out. They learned in a parallel circuit the other bulbs would stay on. They actively learned on their own today and displayed their learning when I came around to assess each of the groups.
When they finished, the students were able to add motors, buzzers, and solar cells to their circuits to make even more complete circuits. The learning that occurred was fun!
