In a circuit we can connect a battery, some wires and a bulb or a buzzer. Electricity will flow from the battery around the circuit to make the bulb light or the buzzer buzz! http://www.ngflcymru.org.uk/vtc/Phase3delivery/Wales/Science/Keystage1/Physicalprocess/Electricalcircu/Introdu ction/default.htm
To be successful......look at the circuit diagrams; decide whether each circuit would work: whether it is complete or not and; tick what you think is the right answer or write to explain why you think the circuit is complete or not.
We will be learning......how to make a complete circuit using a battery, some wires and a bulb or buzzer; how to make a bulb light or a buzzer buzz, explaining what has happened and; to use diagrams in order to show results.
Your plan will look something like this... with a bulb with a buzzer
To be successful......with a partner, collect a battery, some wire and a bulb or a buzzer; make a complete circuit using your equipment; if the circuit does not work check that all the wires are connected correctly and; draw the plan of your circuit to give your results.
Where does electricity come from? Year 1: session 4
We will be learning......how we produce electricity today; the different ways in which we could produce electricity and; the impact of producing electricity on our world.
So, what are the different ways to produce electricity? burning coal water power wind power solar power http://www.solar4schools.co.uk/teachers/S olar-Explained
To be successful......find your equipment; follow the instructions to make your model wind turbine; test out your model by observing whether it would spin next to the fan to generate energy and; think about whether this would be a good way to produce electricity ?
Why might it be important to think about how we produce electricity? Think about what is happening in this video. http://www.anitasancha.co.uk/videos/home-sweet-home/
