    Electrical Circuits - Read a Book

    In this Clicker Book, students read about simple series electrical circuits and how they work.

    They find out what electrical circuits need in order to work, and about components that make up the circuit. The book includes examples of circuit configurations which don't work, and the reasons why they don't work.

    For related sets, search for electrical circuits or electricity on LearningGrids.

  2. Clicker Book

    Change the Circuit - Make a Book

    In this Clicker Book, students write about how a bulb will function, according to variations in how a circuit is set up. The set shows four circuits in which the number of cells, bulbs, and length of wire varies.

    To create the book, go to Edit View. On each page, click/tap on the text box to write - the set contains a word bank for support. For a speaking activity using the same pictures, see the Talk Set “Change the Circuit." For other related sets, search for electrical circuits or electricity on LearningGrids.

  3. Word Bank

    Electrical Circuit Investigation

    This Word Bank enables students to write an outline of an investigation into electrical circuits, in which they test the effects on a light bulb when different components in the circuit are changed.

    The set contains a starter tab, a frame, and relevant vocabulary to write up the investigation. To complete the test, students should change components in the circuit (e.g. battery voltage, wire length, switches on/off, or number of light bulbs) and note the effect on the light bulb.

    For other sets on this topic, search for electrical circuits or electricity on LearningGrids. To write outlines of other science investigations, search for investigation on LearningGrids.

  5. Word Bank

    Electrical Conductors and Insulators Investigation

    This Word Bank contains starters and vocabulary to enable students to write an outline of an investigation in which they find out which materials are good electrical conductors.

    The tabs contain a frame and relevant vocabulary to write up the investigation in which objects made from a range of materials are tested to see which ones can complete an electrical circuit.

    To complete the tests: set up a simple circuit with a bulb, a battery, and wires, but make a gap in the circuit. Then get the students to test different objects in the gap to see which ones can complete the circuit and make the bulb light up. Make a note of the ones which do complete the circuit (conductors) and those that do not (insulators).

    Will the Circuit Work

    In this Talk About activity, students explain whether or not a bulb will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether the bulb is part of a complete circuit with a battery. The set contains four pictures showing different circuit configurations.

    On the start page, click on each picture to open a recording page. Record using the microphone button and listen to the recordings on the start page.

  10. Matching Sets

    Electrical Circuit Symbols - Look and Read

    In this Matching Set, students match electrical circuit symbols and words.

    Revise the symbols on the start page. Then on each page look at the symbol and read the words to find a match. The activity is designed so that students will achieve success – they can try all options until they find the correct match.

    For an activity based on the same content, where students can choose any word to match the target symbol, see the Custom Set "Electrical Circuits – Look and Read Two." For related sets, search for electrical circuits or electricity on LearningGrids.
