Hello! 

I'm a student at the University of Houston, I'm due for my second observation in two weeks and decided to teach a lesson on circuits. I work with a 4th-grade class, I was wondering if there were any books I could use in the lesson. So far the most interesting one I have found is a Magic School Bus book.

Use Explore All Resources button to search and when I have more time I will look to see what I have in Picture Perfect Science. They include a great variety of trade books to engage learners.

Hello Daisy,

You should check out the excellent simulations at Phet Colorado:  https://phet.colorado.edu

In particular: https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/circuit-construction-kit-dc and https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/circuit-construction-kit-dc-virtual-lab are elementary level. 

In each simulation there is a section for teachers that has a primer on how to use the simulation, activity plans, worksheets, etc.  I highly recommend that you register as a teacher to get access to these.  The simulations have also been translated into over 40 languages and many activities are also in other languages!  

Hope this helps,
