Science: Electricity


In science we have really enjoyed learning about circuits. We looked at which materials are insulators and conductors.

We then used switches and understand that the switch completes the circuit. 

We understand that the length of the wire impacts the brightness of the bulbs.

We made series circuits and looked at what happened to the bulbs next to each other. We made a 'human circuit' to further understand what the electrons do and how they move around the circuit.

We then made a parallel circuit. We noticed that in a parallel circuit, both bulbs were the same brightness.
