We are learning about circuits at home, and I wanted to share how we explore this subject through hands-on activities. I designed the learning resources we used in this subject area, including the presentation slides, the interactive notebook and foldable, the activity cards (command cards) and worksheets. This Circuit Learning Bundle I made is designed for kids ages 8 years and older. Even kids in secondary school (middle school) can use these as review notes or for practice. If you own this bundle, just print the ones you need.

Sharing below our unit. May you find this inspirational!

Here’s an activity that you might want to try for March!  St. Patrick's Day Pattern Blocks Spin and Build, where you integrate math (shapes) to St. Patrick's Day symbols and icons.    Using the mats, you spin the spinner for the shapes that you will be using to form the puzzle.

I created this fun and engaging activities for my boys who love to tinker and do creative stuff with some of our manipulatives.  They would often work on these on weekend mornings during our quiet time or on weeknights before dinner.

The boys are crazy over this Laser Maze Logic Game.  I came across this logic STEM toy while I was scouting for learning materials for Mavi’s “optics” activity.   Mavi loves solving the problems in the task cards and Vito on the other hand is fascinated by the effect of the laser light on the target.

This summer, Mavi requested that we do some science lessons that we haven’t touched before (math’s a different story though).  Thus previously, we had types of fossils and a review of clouds.  Last week, he was watching the story of the caveman on how they were able to build tools that helped them build houses, kill animals for food and clothing and for protection.  As you can see, in his spare time, he loves to spend time in the yard and looks for ways to create an axe using a stick and a stone.  With this interest, I introduced him to simple machines.

Vito is 31 months old.
I decided that for our Light and Shadow Unit, we’ll explore indoor and outdoor lights.

We love our Safari Toob!  I think every ‘Mom’schooler should have at least a set or two of these toobs.  They are fabulous learning materials and my kids love them!

Anyway, Mavi is officially joining Vito’s weekly themed activities as he’s almost done with school. He misses “Mom” school and urged me to let him join with the activities.  So while Vito is all about play and learn, I’m giving Mavi some serious investigative work like research, more readings, and selective hands-on activities.

Vito is 30 months old.

I bought this amazing product when we went to the US last month.  We have Magnatiles and we love it, but the problem is we can’t really make something more out of those squares and triangles. When I came across Stick N Stack in Amazon and read good reviews, I just needed to buy those beautiful window tiles and carts!   And if you ask me, yes they work really well with Magnatiles!

And since we’re having Transportation Unit, I made Vito create his own cart.  Oh boy, he played with it for hours!!  I asked Mavi to assist his little brother for awhile but later on left when he realized that Vito doesn’t want him for a playmate.
