As part of our Forces unit we explored Static electricity then electricity in the form of electric circuits. This was a lot of fun.
Beforehand we ask questions about how electricity gets to our homes, how it travels along very small wires and why does something like a fan still turn after it is turned off.
After our group could make an electric circuit by testing it with a globe we then replaced the globe with a motor. Some of us joined up our circuits. When we had out motors and blade working we exchanged the battery for a mini Solar panel. It was surprising to see how strong the suns rays are on just a small panel and how well it made the motor and blade turn. We recorded our diagrams of our circuits in our workbooks.
