This Montessori Circuits 5-Part card is the best resource for learning concepts on Circuits. This is designed for kids ages 8 years and older and can be used in many ways. The main goal of this material is for the child to know and define circuit-related vocabulary words.

I also created other learning resources that will perfectly go along with this resource, but those deserve a separate post. Right now, I'm showing you details of this material and how to use it.

Watch out for a follow-up post on how we use this at home.

What you will get:
• 2 different chart designs
• 18 control cards
• 18 picture cards
• 18 label cards
• 18 definition cards
• 18 quiz cards
• 18 blackline master (blank) for kids to color and write the labels
• 18 blackline master in cursive for kids to color and trace
• Activity booklet (in 3 formats) for kids to colourr, label and write their definition

Vocabulary words included in this pack:

Circuit, battery, a complete circuit, incomplete circuit, electrical loads, multimeter, parallel circuit, series circuit, open circuit, close circuit, ammeter, short circuit, capacitor, resistor and transistor

How to use the Montessori 5-Part Cards:

For younger kids, control cards to picture and label cards to match.

For older (upper elementary and middle school) kids, control cards to definition cards, quiz cards to control cards or quiz cards to picture cards and label cards.

This is an open-ended resource. You can try any matching activity with your kids. It is best if you can use these with real objects.
