In Science, children are learning all about electricity. Children investigated which materials are electrical conductors or insulators and made predictions. They built a circuit with a bulb and a cell and tested several materials such as rubber, metal, plastic etc to identify if they are electrical conductors or insulators.

A conductor of electricity is a material that will allow electricity to flow through it. Materials that are electrical insulators do not allow electricity to flow through them.

Children found out that metals are good conductors of electricity and plastic, rubber, wood are good insulators.

Take a look at how the investigation was conducted…
