Learning About Circuits with Circuit Stickers

2nd grade GT students learned about circuits through the use of circuit stickers.  First, we explored this Symbaloo webmix to learn what makes a circuit work.

Next, we watched this tutorial video to see how to make our circuit stickers work. (The video is also part of the Symbaloo webmix.)

Finally we were ready to try to make our circuits. We used the template provided by the maker of the circuit stickers, Chibitronics. (You can find that template here or also linked on the above Symbaloo webmix.)

Once everyone had a working circuit (some of us practiced perseverance and problem solving to make our circuits work), the students turned their circuit into a light up art piece.  Enjoy their work!
