The 4th graders exhibited their “electric” structures for their parents on Wednesday morning in their classrooms. This was the culminating project of learning about electric circuits in science that they started the unit in September. They partnered up to create a structure of their choice (igloo, treehouse, medieval castle and Star Wars’ “Deathstar” to name a few).
Following a rubric, they had to have four switches that carried electricity to light bulbs inside a well planned out and designed cardboard structure. Not only did this project show persistence in getting all the circuits to work, but collaboration with a partner and positive thinking in making it all come together.
