How to Make an Electric Quiz Board! – by Claire

A few weeks ago, in third grade G/T class, students used their knowledge of electric circuits to make electric quiz boards. Claire decided she wanted to create an instructional video showing how to make one! After creating a flow map (a type of Thinking Map we’ve learned) that showed the sequence of steps, Claire explained each step in the video.

  1. Claire! You are so clever! I think your electric quiz board is ingenious! I have many things rolling around in my head about circuits and electricity. For example, you used conductors and insulators. I can use your quiz board idea as an example for my class when we review conductors and insulators, circuits and electricity. How would you compare this to other projects you’ve done?

    • Dear Amy,

      Well, we also did something without the paper and electric tape. We just used paper clips, the battery, tape, and light bulb. And thank you for taking my project as an example.

  2. Wow…really impressed with your video. I am going to show my fourth graders when we study magnetism and electricity. Thanks for posting!

  3. Hello Claire! How fasinating! I am also Mrs.Lasher’s student, but I am in 4th grade. I remember last year when we made them. I’m glad you had as much fun as I did! Keep up the great work!

  4. Hi my name is Charlene and you I really like the idea of making an ‘Electric Quiz Board’! I really like Claire was showing people how to make an Electric Quiz Board and when I was watching the video, Claire was making it step by step. Did you really enjoy having a go at making it Claire? Well, my class are going to make some after Christmas and I hoping to enjoy it. How many stars will you give it out of Claire?

  5. Hello Claire! Great work.My name is Filiz I am in year6.We love commenting on your blog.It is great to see your post.I think you should write more. What a fantastic post. I enjoy reading your post.I would love to make a Electric Quiz Board. How was it?Was it fun?

  6. Hello my name is Leyla and I come from London, just to say I am quadblogging with you! I really really like your post Claire, I love this so much. I haven’t really made it before, You must have had a really good time. Did you have a great time making it? How did you find out about this intresting thing? Please comment back to me becuase I’m really intrested. Bye for now,


    (Visit our blog and you’ll find lots of cool things, just like yours!)

  7. What a fantastic video Claire! I think you could be an electrical engineer OR a presenter when you grow up… You explained quite a complex process is a very straightforward way, and I know that you have inspired some of the children in my class to have a go at making a quiz board at home… I’m sure that with your instructions they will be successful.

    You presented your video really well – did you find it a little stressful being in front of the camera? You look very relaxed! Have you made any other exciting electrical things? I thought of something that you might enjoy making – here is a link to the ‘Squishy Circuits’ page – messy, creative, puzzling and fun. We will be exploring them at Ferry Lane after Christmas, so perhaps we could share our experiences.

    Thanks agan for a fab video Claire, and have a good winter break,

  8. Claire, this is astonishing! I can’t even do this and your younger than me. This tells me your great at science and you should be proud. In class we tried your idea and it was very hard, I think I didn’t do a great job. Anyway keep on the great science work, you could make many more videos of how to make other creative stuff in science.


  9. as you i am a student from south africa my fellow classmates they do not like but introducing the matching they love math and also seeing maths as a great subject
