Teacher Review for Circuit Jam

I like this as an option to let the students practice the concept of building and understanding circuits.

How I Use It
I teach a unit on electricity and circuits. This is a fun way to have the kids practice what they have learned and make it a little more hands on than on paper. I think it helped bridge the gap and gave additional understanding to most of the students.
My Take
I think that this is a nice tool to teach students about how a circuit works and lets them try different things to see what will complete the circuit and what will block the flow of electricity.
