Susie Scientist visited our first and second graders last week! She brought with her energy sticks, which conduct electricity. Susie talked about how neurons make connections, and how the energy stick helped connect the class.
Students worked in groups, holding hands with each other and the energy sticks to learn about closed circuits and open circuits. They held hands in a big circle and sure enough, the machine buzzed and lit up!
What a great way to learn!
