Students making LED Throwie Animals

Last week we made LED Throwies using a few basic materials: LEDs, lithium batteries, rare earth magnets and electric tape. 

It was easy to construct both for our 3rd/4th grade group, as well as the 5th and 6th grade group.

Some of the activities we tried were creating an ultra-large throwie with all our creations, playing a competitive throwie toss, and making LED animals. 

All of the materials can be found at a hardware store and kids of various ages can enjoy this "illuminating" activity.
