|The eyes light up so this must be a conductor.|
Today we began our brief study of electricity. We shared what we already know or think we know about electricity and then brainstormed things we know that use electrticity. Students were introduced to the electricity owl It helps us discover things that are insulators and conductors. One of our stations tomorrow will provide us all the opportunity to explore this a little further. We will also be learning and exploring with simple circuits and learning to use a battery to light up a mini-lightbulb.
Everyone quickly figuired out which items insulators and did not choose them. The wooden ruler, piece of felt and plastic items were not selected.
