A challenging circuit inquiry activity. Students need to draw a simple circuit based on 7 clues. I.e., If light bulb 1 is unscrewed, bulb 2, 3 and 4 stay on, etc.

Includes an answer key.

It's a great addition to any electricity unit as it can be used to teach circuit diagrams as well as a review at the end of a unit. Can be used in any grade level that teaches electricity.
