HOW DO YOU THINK A BATTERY WORKS? BATTERY

HOW IS EITHER OF THE CIRCUIT MODELS YOU BUILT SIMILAR TO A FLASHLIGHT’S CIRCUIT?

Lab # 7: Get Connected Activity #2

1. 1.W ERE YOUR PREDICTIONS CORRECT ? H OW DO YOU KNOW ? 2. 2.H OW ARE THE MATERIALS THAT CONDUCTED ELECTRICITY ALLOWING THE BULB TO LIGHT ALIKE ? 3. 3.W HICH MATERIAL CREATED THE BRIGHTEST BULB ? 4. 4.W HAT ARE YOU WONDERING NOW ?W HAT ARE YOU WONDERING NOW ?

M AKE A D RAWING WITH L ABELS C REATE A DRAWING TO INCLUDE EVERYTHING YOU WOULD NEED TO MAKE A LIGHT - BULB LIGHT OR A RADIO WORK. L ABEL YOUR DRAWING AND USE ARROWS TO SHOW THE DIRECTION OF THE CURRENT. D ESCRIBE HOW THE CIRCUIT WORKS. W RITE TO E XPLAIN A CLASSMATE IS STUDYING A CORD THAT CONNECTS A LAMP TO A WALL OUTLET. T HE CLASSMATE SEES THAT THE INSIDE OF THE CORD IS MADE OF METAL WIRE, AND THAT THE OUTSIDE OF THE CORD IS MADE OF PLASTIC. E XPLAIN WHY EACH OF THESE MATERIALS IS USED IN THE CORD.

B. A SCIENTIST IS STUDYING A CORD THAT CONNECTS A LAMP TO A WALL OUTLET. T HE SCIENTIST SEES THAT THE INSIDE OF THE CORD IS MADE OF METAL WIRE. T HE OUTSIDE OF THE CORD IS MADE OF PLASTIC. E XPLAIN WHY EACH OF THESE MATERIALS IS USED IN THE CORD. Brief Constructed Response: Electric Circuits Adapted from Discovery Education
