Archived unit: Electronic greeting cards
Electrical systems builds on pupils' knowledge of how to incorporate electrical circuits into products from Year 4. Children explore how circuits can be adapted to suit different purposes. They will explore series circuits using standard equipment and then recreate one using conductive adhesive tape. They apply this knowledge to inform design criteria and develop an electronic greeting card.
We have archived this unit on safety grounds as the final card contains coin batteries that present a choking hazard, particularly if the cards are taken home. Please risk assess this unit of lessons if you wish to proceed.
