Teaching about electric circuits to 4 to 7 year olds – all in 1.5 hours – was an interesting new challenge.
The class began with the basics – what is electricity? what are electrons? what is an open and closed circuit?
The main take-home idea I wanted to convey was that electricity involved a continuous flow of energy.
The students even drew their own closed and open circuit diagrams!
This was emphasised further by their final project – a light-up greeting card with a “switch” – a demonstration of open and closed circuits.
The students were very engaged and interested!
This class was a program offered by Science Bridge Academy, Malaysia.
