1.Static Electricity Intro
-demos: pvc pipe, wool/felt, and paper, paperclips
-Comment: We had planned on the kids all trying to make static electricity each with a plastic ruler. The plastic rulers did not pick up anything.
-powerpoint of circuit basics
-craft activity that reviewed simple circuits. They built a card that incorporated a circuit with a battery and a light or a motor.

We also bought 6 of these switches https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9414 later in the semester which would have been good for this project so they are available in the supply closet now, check for them with the light bulbs.
5. Parallel circuits
-discovery experiment, how to keep one light on while turning one off
