GETTING WIRED WITH CIRCUIT BOARDS

Mrs. Wippel's class used their knowledge of electric circuitry to create circuit boards.  Students wrote questions and answers on their circuit boards.  Only the correct answers were wired with a closed circuit. This type of "hands on" activity shows students the connection between Science and its application in their world.
