Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
The Circuits and switches Unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. This product pairs perfectly with the supporting kit in the Related Products tab.
Primary Connections units focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy. These units are an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom through hands-on activities and investigations.
Access to safe, reliable electrical power has revolutionised our lives in countless ways. With a flick of a switch we complete a circuit, allowing electrical energy to be transferred and transformed into light in our lamps and televisions, heat in our toasters and electric blankets, sound in our radios, and motion in our dishwashers and blenders.
Through hands-on investigations, students explore simple circuits and their components, including batteries, bulbs and switches to explain how a torch works.
They discuss sources of electrical energy, and plan, make and appraise a model incorporating an electrical circuit with a switch.

Great explanation of electrical concepts
Review by Peter
"The circuit and switches resource provides a fantastic breakdown of the concepts of electrical circuits that I have taken for granted. This book does a great job at simplifying these concepts and provided a wonderful aid when teaching the concepts to year 6 students. They had tremendous fun building the circuits and where able to understand and explain the science behind it all. "(Posted on 22/08/2017)
