Kirchhoff's whispers (a circuit building game)

Kirchhoff's whispers (a circuit building game)

Put pupils into 6 groups at 6 stations round the room. Pupils are given a card with a circuit diagram on it, they must build the diagram and then flip over the card. At the next station, they have to draw the circuit diagram and then take apart the circuits. At the next station they have to build the circuit based on the diagram they see, then throw away the diagram. They game continues for as long as you want it to! This assesses and develops their circuit building and drawing skills. It also shows them why it's so important to draw circuit diagrams carefully. I've printed this double sided, then laminated so that they can draw the circuit on the back in whiteboard pen. Enjoy! Please review!
