4.3 The student will investigate and understand the characteristics of electricity. Key concepts include a) conductors and insulators; b) basic circuits; c) static electricity; d) the ability of
electrical energy to be transformed into light and motion, and to produce heat; e) simple electromagnets and magnetism, and f) historical contributions in understanding electricity.
Objective: The students will be able to understand and identify the parts of a simple circuit given the youtube video, website, discussion post, and assessment with 80 percent accuracy.
After watching the video can you think of any household objects that share one of each of the circuits. After listing your objects, respond to another students post on whether you agree or disagree with their answers

Electricity is made up of tiny particles called electrons-movement generates electricity and powers every-day appliances
How does electricity make appliances work?
PCK: Pedagogy supports the content knowledge by instructing them to watch the video and assess them based on their knowledge of circuits. Students can interact virtually through the discussion board about circuits they see in everyday life. It is a simulation
TCK: The technology support the content by letting the students independently learn the material by going by their own pace. Students can access this content at any time and makes it easier to put the pieces together.
TPK: The technology supports the pedagogy by giving them a hands-on learning experience to let them work at their own pace so that they can further knowledge through interaction. No way to do a simulation like this without the technology.
Pedagogy: interactive website and YouTube video
Content: simple circuits
Technology: discussion board, activity and video
