4th Grade Builds Flashlights

Fourth graders completed a fun project in science class building their own flashlights. Their objective was to build a circuit and test varying strategies to see the effect on the bulb's brightness.

Working in pairs, the students were given D batteries, wire, a lightbulb, fasteners, a paper clip, tape, and paper. 

The students made both series and parallel circuits and used one or two batteries. They had fun testing their results in the dark!
