As well, students explore electromagnetism, motors, generators, and renewable and non-renewable sources of electricity. Students also investigate the environmental impact of human consumption and conservation of electrical energy.Also included:* Materials lists;* Activity descriptions;* Questioning techniques;* Activity centre and extension ideas;* Assessment suggestions; and* Activity sheets and visuals The module offers a detailed introduction to the Hands-On Science program (guiding principles, implementation guidelines, an overview of the skills that young students use and develop during scientific inquiry), a list of children's books and websites related to the science topics introduced, and a classroom assessment plan with record-keeping templates.Activity: Part Two Have the students discover other advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel circuits. Have a student in ... Do you think the same thing will happen if you remove a wire from the parallel circuit? Have the students testanbsp;...
