My Students

My 4th grade students enjoyed learning about Geodesic Domes last year and expressed their interest in electrical circuits. My students are excited to learn by building background with research, solving problems, and using professional methodology.

Most of my students are Gifted and Talented, which are high academic performer compared to their peers.

The school is has an excellent learning culture which is reflected in our classes. This is my second year working with my students and I find them very eager to learn new things. They are excited about critical thinking and hands-on projects. I love them because they are life long learners.

My Project

The Snap Circuit Discovery Kits and circuit supplies are for the following:

Students will use the professional vocabulary and methodology.

Students will model the flow of electrons in a circuit.

Students will build actual electric circuit.

Students will draw diagrams of electric circuits.

Students will test objects for conductors or insulators.

Students will explore electric circuits with electrical kits.

Each student will design and create a paper circuit, which is the final product. They will explain how it works and present it.

In summary, adding electrical kits and supplies will allow the student to solve real world problem. My students’ electrical circuit experiences will most likely promote future electrical engineers.
