Reviewer Comments:

The lab activity provides solid hands-on exploration of an important topic. However, there is some information that is not included, making it less suitable for teachers who are not experienced in teaching circuits. For example, the activity references diagrams “a” and “b” although these diagrams are not evident on the downloadable pdf. The procedure, data table, and conclusion expectations are clear, but the overall activity would be enhanced with the inclusion of some background information and possibly an answer key. The activity is targeted for grades 6 – 12, although it seems most suitable for the late elementary through middle school students.
