Science companion project: Electrical Circuits and Conductors

Series circuits and components

Today, we looked at complete and incomplete circuits using an energy stick. We looked at breaks in the circuit, what conducts electricity and even used the metal fence and brick wall to test our theories! Back in the classroom, we looked at the components used to make a series circuit including an lamp, a switch and a motor.

Making switches

Today we looked out how switches work and then used our own handmade ones in circuits.
