Electricity is a comprehensive science unit for middle years students with very little prep required by the teacher. It is completely laid out with teacher notes and a sequence of activities. Students will learn about electricity through notes, discussions, demonstrations, videos, and many hands-on activities. A culminating activity for the unit is a project in which students design, build, test, and evaluate their own prototype of something that uses electricity.

In this unit, students will learn about: static and current electricity, atoms, neutrons, protons, electrons, positive and negative charges, designing a fair test, electrical safety, parts of a circuit, simple circuits, series circuits, parallel circuits, circuit problems, electrical circuit symbols, switches, open and closed circuits, conductors, insulators, electromagnets, sources of electricity, renewable and non-renewable resources and designing a prototype that uses electricity.
