Objective: To create a paper circuit that lights up an LED and is powered by a battery.
Grade Level: 3rd
Time: 40 minutes
Materials: Paper circuit page (attached above with or without switch), copper foil tape (if possible, with conductive adhesive), coin cell battery, 5mm or other size LED, small binder clip, scotch tape. (See second image above.)
Separate the copper foil tape from the white backing paper. This can be tricky! If you have trouble, try rubbing your thumb across the end of the tape or bending the end of the tape back and forth a few times.
The tape will curl so be careful not to allow it to stick to itself.
