Think again about electric circuits(Activity)

Pupils' initial thinking

What the activity is for

The questions are used for two main reasons:

  • To encourage individual pupils to begin to think through their ideas about electric circuits.
  • To provide the teacher with formative assessment information about the pupils' initial thinking.

  • What the activity is for

  • question sheets for think again questions 1–3

  • Support sheet

    What happens during this activity

    Pupils work individually or in pairs on the questions and are encouraged to think and to write down their answers with as much detail as possible. The questions might be set for homework prior to the first lesson so that you have time to read through the responses. Alternatively, they might be used at the start of the first lesson while you move around looking at what the pupils are writing.
