ks3 worksheet on electricity

Electricity and electric circuits teaching resources

Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students aged 11 to 16 to think hard about electric circuits (gcse and key stage 3).

Electricity is a challenging concept to teach. Concepts like potential difference and current are incredibly abstract – these ideas are novel and not easily linked to the concrete world. Secondly, many concepts go against children’s naive ideas e.g. current is used up when it passes through a component.   It is important that ideas are introduced with real caution and that the ideas of current, voltage and energy are dealt with separately first ( Driver et al., 1994 ).

Where to start?

The light bulb challenge . Ask students to light a bulb using only a wire and a battery. This simple activity often challenges students – many think it is impossible to do with only one wire! It would be an excellent way to introduce the topic on electrical circuits. Click on this link to see how MIT graduates coped with this science challenge .

Static electricity

Key Stage 3 worksheet on static electricity . Students use a series of models to help them explain what happens when you rub a balloon against hair. Thanks to Roz Chalk for advice on how to approach the concept of charge. This activity provides a framework to begin thinking about charge, potential difference and current. ( PDF )

The electric sausage is a great demonstration to introduce electric fields and static charges.

This is an excellent blog describing how to use the rope model to explain current and resistance .

Static electricity animation

This fantastic Phet animation provides a great starting point to begin thinking about charge, conductors, current and energy before electrical circuits are introduced.

Voltage, current and resistance: an analogy

Key Stage 3 and GCSE worksheet on current, voltage and resistance . Students use three different concrete models to help understand and describe current, voltage and resistance. By using three analogy models, we are hoping to prevent students from taking any one model too literarily. It could also be a nice opportunity for students to build their own models to explain the essential features of electrical circuits. ( PDF )

Series and parallel circuits

This is a fantastic tool to draw circuit diagrams  using a computer.

Key Stage 3 worksheet on series and parallel circuits . Students consider whether a series or parallel circuit would be best for their Christmas tree lights. This activity can easily be extended to look at the similarities and differences between the circuits with respect to voltage, current and resistance. ( PDF )

Engaging demonstrations

Try the energy stick with your classes . A great way to investigate current, conductors and resistance. Or see how two different kinds of homemade play dough can be used to demonstrate electrical properties — by lighting up LEDs, spinning motors, and turning little kids into circuit designers.

Going deeper

  • Explain how pollen sticks to bees using static electricity .

A revision booklet to support the delivery of the KS3 Electricity and Magnetism topic. Each page is designed to support a lesson of work. Great to help support a non-specialist teacher or for helping students prepare for low stakes testing mid-topic or end of topic assessment. Each lesson of revision is supported by tiered questions (with mark scheme) to allow students to apply their revision.

In my teaching I set these as homework tasks to help students prepare for mid-topic AFL lessons and then they use the whole booklet, with questions and mark scheme to help prepare for the end of topic test. I have included these homework pages.

The AFL booklet, which includes tiered questions for every lesson and then stretch or support questions for the mini topic, along with accompanying mark scheme, is available to purchase.
