Why Sci Electricity
These videos and companion materials explore ELECTRICITY and its properties including simple circuits and how electricity can produce thermal energy, heat energy, sound energy and magnetic energy. Concepts are aligned to 5th grade Science, Nature of Energy indicators 3 & 4.
Interested in facilitating the activities from the Teaching Sound video in your classroom? Activity write-ups can be found in the links below.
There are several different procedures and materials to make circuits, select one that will best suit your classroom needs. Can Do OR Energy Quest OR Utah State Office of Education OR use this procedure and lesson created by a teacher
