What kinds of circuits are there? Circuit – complete path of electric current Closed (complete) Circuit – complete path for electricity to flow Open (incomplete) Circuit – incomplete path that does not allow electricity to flow Parallel Circuit – current flows along multiple paths in the circuit Series circuit – current flows along one path in the circuit Click on the circuit board.
Wait! How can we control all of that electricity? Current – flow of electric charge Insulator – material that prevents the flow of electricity Conductor – material that allows electricity to flow Battery – cells providing electricity Switch – device for opening/closing an electric circuit Resistor – device used in electric circuit to control current Click on the SWITCH to continue.
So, back to that thing about the fruit... Do you think we can get power from fruit? Get your safety goggles on! Click on the goggles to continue on this awesome adventure!
Yay, it is time to write about this! We still have a few more minutes so I want each person to write 1 paragraph on your worksheets (passed out) about what you learned in class today. Remember a paragraph is at least 4 sentences.
