As part of our SITE topic, we have been exploring Electricity. Today we created some of our own simple circuits. Once they were working, we added extra components (like another bulb) and discussed what happened as the electrical current was having to be shared.
To end the lesson, we looked at good and bad conductors. What happened when we added tin foil to our circuit? Would plastic break the circuit? What happened with a metal nail? What about a rubber band? Ask your children what they found out, their explanations are fantastic!
