In this activity children will investigate electrical circuits and consider how a safe and reliable circuit that works, can be made.
Every town has a special celebration when the Christmas town tree lights are turned on and maybe also beautiful lights through the streets. Imagine if the switch was flicked… and nothing happened?
Children will investigate electrical circuits and consider how a safe and reliable circuit, that works, can be made.
- that electrical circuits are needed for 'real life' functions and we need a number of components to build them
Children will learn:
- that different drawings/diagrams can be used to represent different components
- to construct a circuit and represent it through diagrams
These resources were initially developed in partnership with the Centre for Science Education, Sheffield Hallam University.
