We have just come to the end of a topic about electricity. This covered being safe around electricity and making simple circuits. Here follows a few photos of activities we did. The children really seemed to enjoy themselves.
Spinning art – a card disc spins on a motor. The girls here use pens to mark the disc as it spins. The fun bit is when the spinning stops and the pattern can be revealed!
Testing materials for conductivity and recording findings.
Sorting items into groups- does the item only use mains power, or only battery power or can it use both? The hoops were used as sets.
Recording thoughts onto a Venn diagram.
Look! We can make two bulbs light!
I’ll be your fan! Using a motor and propeller to make a working fan.
