💡Circuits for Kids

If this is the first time your students are learning about different types of circuits, have no fear! This exciting concept is one in which students love to use their hands while building and testing different types of circuits. Teach starter has a bulletin board kit ready to go for you to use with your student when learning about electricity and circuits.

With this bulletin board set, your students will learn about different types of circuits, such as a(n):

  • Open circuit
  • Closed circuit
  • Series circuit
  • Parallel circuit

Additionally, there are vocabulary cards to display alongside the circuit posters. The words included on the vocabulary cards are:

  • Wire
  • Circuit
  • Battery
  • Switch
  • Bulb
  • Motor

This bulletin board display also comes with a colorful lightbulb banner to use on the top of your board.


How to Display Posters Covering Different Types of Circuits

  1. Print the posters and vocabulary cards and display them in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the posters, slide them into a clear sleeve, and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
