|This pen conducts electricity|
We have been testing different materials to see which conducts electricity.
If you use a LED in your circuit instead of a bulb you will also be able to find out that tap/salty water conducts electricity but that distilled does not - important for later in the week as you will see.
We talked about how electricity gets into the home and had a look into our fuse box. These two books below explain well how electricity is generated and sent into our homes.
We discussed safety and played this safety game from Aurora Energy.
We'll be doing more experiments and making more circuits throughout the week.
