This is a stunning and affordable project to teach students the basics of electronics and circuit design.
I have developed 3 paper circuit cards that include a scaffolding approach so that students will be able to create their own circuit designs from scratch. Just follow the easy written instructions on the card or watch my short “How to-video”. The link to my vimeo video is in included in this package. Start with Card #1, then move on to card #2 and lastly create your circuit design from scratch in card #3.
You will also have access to my password protected video where I show how to make you rcircuit card light up, yeah!
Embed some literacy into these card! Each card has a dedicated space for writing e.g. about the experience working with electronics, short story about the characters on the card, reflection etc. .The writing ideas are endless!
For best results print each card on white cardstock paper - double-sided.
You need the following materials to make the cards blink:
- coin cell batteries
- copper tape or aluminum tape
- binder clip
- Paper circuit cards (that you buy here and print off)
