These resources have been reviewed and selected by STEM Learning’s team of education specialists for factual accuracy and relevance to teaching STEM subjects in UK schools.


Produced by the Hamilton Trust, these resources give details of eight lessons on electricity. This includes lesson plans, practical activities and all student materials. Students begin with revision of simple circuits before gaining lots of hands on experience with symbols, diagrams and incomplete circuits. They investigate the effect of the length of wire in a circuit, compare series and parallel circuits and finally face some circuit challenges! The lessons are:

  • Circuit revision
  • Circuit diagrams
  • Circuit repairs
  • Wires
  • Series and parallel
  • Circuit challenges
  • Cells
  • Control technology

The Hamilton website also hosts a wealth of other free resources.
