Turning on the Lights Ideas<br />Government: Have the kids design a law and create a presentation on all the steps they would take to get their law passed. They would need to do all the research then develop a presentation using the technologies that they choose.<br />Science: The kids need to create a video teaching other kids about electricity. Each group needs to do all the research, write a script and tape their show. They will be given objectives on what they need to teach in their video. (Example: How does a circuit work?)<br />Research a guided question in groups, collect the data, organize it and present findings using technology. A question could be: If you could design your own house any shape you want, what shape would you make your house? (This could go with a unit you are working on that involves perimeter and area of different shapes). <br /> 7.
