        Launching a Unit on Electric Circuits

        In this video from Teaching Elementary Physical Science, watch how fourth-grade teacher Linda Block has her students surface prior knowledge before beginning a unit about the principles of electricity. Block describes beginning the unit with a questionnaire about familiar examples of electricity, then moves on to introduce the students to more complex content. In addition, she assesses their understanding of the content by having them create posters.
