This PowerPoint is highly animated. It meets the NC requirement that pupils are able to draw circuit diagrams and construct actual circuits from them. The sequence of the lesson is draw circuit, design table, construct circuit, measure/observe, conclude.
It will suit all abilities but provides extension material for the more able as questions requiring a deeper analysis and explanation . Support for those pupils failing to draw a circuit diagram or table is always given on the next slide.
The PowerPoint ends with a five question, fully animated class quiz with sound, to be used as a plenary or exit ticket activity.
The PowerPoint will suit any circuit building kits you have. Groups of 3-4 pupils ideal.
The lesson Current, Voltage and Resistance can be downloaded free. It uses the recommendation in AQAs KS3 syllabus for science that a water analogy is used to explain electricity. Part of another lesson is previewed at the end of the download. If you don't buy any others please enjoy these with your pupils with my good wishes.
