Excellent interactive site that allows you to click-and-drag various parts to build a closed circuit. If done correctly, the light bulb will turn on. The greater the energy, the brighter the bulb will shine. Circuit options include wires, light bulbs, batteries, switches and resistors. The Grab Bag includes these seven items that can also be added to the circuit: dollar bill, paper clip, penny, eraser, pencil lead, hand, dog. Students could also use the ammeter or voltmeter to measure the current/voltage in their circuit, save their circuit, and then create a new circuit and compare and contrast the two.
