What would we do without electric light? The world would feel quite different. Lights color our world even in the dark. Can your students put together their own circuits? With this challenge, they can light up their own decorations with LED lights.

What would we do without electric light? The world would feel quite different. Lights color our world even in the dark. Can your students put together their own circuits? With this challenge, they can light up their own decorations with LED lights.

Challenge your children to build a circuit. For the Light It Up! Project, students are challenged to create a decoration, scene, or situation that uses light to “complete” it.

As I will mention under tips and tricks later, I once did this project around Christmas time, since that is a time when many decorate with lights. But, any theme could work to spark creativity! Here’s what is included in this product.

  • Annotated picture book list: narratives about lights and nonfiction about electricity & circuits
  • Lesson on Electricity and Circuits with differentiated worksheets, including an intro to schematic diagrams and series vs parallel circuits
  • How to set up a build your own LED diode circuit, with tips from my past experiences
  • Photos of LED circuit samples
