Electricity Fun

As part of their topic the children were learning about what the word electricity means and the different types of electricity. We played a pass the parcel game whilst singing the Braehead song, when we stopped singing a child had to take an object out the bag, name the object and put it into the electricity group or group without electricity.

They had fun experimenting with batteries, wires with crocodile clips and light bulbs. Every group were given the same amount of resources and the challenge was to get the light bulb to light up. Lots of fun was had this afternoon learning about an electric circuit. They learned some new vocabulary about circuits and we also had a laugh using a balloon and watching our hair stand up to show the meaning of static electricity.
