This is the third part of a series of blogs written to suggest teaching methodology for the topic “Electricity”. Brief descriptions of Parts One and Two have been included below.
Part One: Models: In the picture below, soup cans are used to represent students. Actual students formed in a circle will pass and receive playing cards (electrons). Students pass the cards on command, when the teacher says “PASS”. A potential boost occurs at the battery, a potential drop at the light bulb. Students are assigned roles at a switch, a load, or a battery. At a load, the student can be asked to twirl at each pass to simulate work being done.
