In this physical science unit about electricity, Upper Elementary students (grades 3 to 5) learn about electric current and how it is used in many different types of electric circuits. Other topics addressed include electrical conductors and insulators, and electromagnets. As a summative assessment, students are challenged to build their own electrical device and explain how it functions.
