The pictures below are from Mrs. Chapman’s and Mrs. Gerardi’s classes as they worked through one of the new common core standards for electricity.  The two classes studied electrical currents, cells, and closed circuits.  Knowing that the material was new to both classrooms, the teachers decided to merge the classes to share a peer mentoring task of building a closed circuit using batteries, light bulbs, wires, and various conductors.  Mrs. Reed (Middle School Science Teacher) helped supply the classes with the materials required to complete the task.  Mrs. Gerardi’s students had created these circuits in a past lesson, while Mrs. Chapman’s class had seen a demonstration of the circuit and studied the concepts in their science textbooks.  This is another example of students receiving a hands-on opportunity, working with real world items, which will stay with them throughout life!
