Electricity and Circuits Science Unit for Special Education - Unit 1
Introduce basic concepts about electricity and circuits with this printable, hands-on activity set. Includes background info for teachers, so you can just print the pages and start the lessons with almost no prep! You can also just show the pages on a tablet, computer or phone screen. Each page has everything on it that you need to say and do with your student.
To maximize your use of this unit, you will want to get an inexpensive circuits kit for kids (like the one pictured below) for lesson 5, where you do some hands-on building. I got this kit for around $20 from Amazon.com, and I have been using it for many months! Best $20 I have ever spent in my teaching career.
*Please note: This unit is for students with at least a little bit of spoken language or communication skills: answering simple questions and filling in the blanks about the information in the lessons. I'm working on a unit for non-verbal students coming soon.*
