29 Jan Science – Electrical Insulators & Conductors
This week, in Science, we have been investigating electrical insulators and conductors. We made electrical circuits to check whether materials were insulators or conductors. An electrical conductor allows electricity to pass through so the light bulb would light up. However, an electrical insulator does not let electricity pass through, which means that the electricity won’t reach the bulb so it won’t light up.
Tye and Sienna showed that they were true scientists with super enquiry skills. Tye wondered whether his watch was a conductor or insulator so he decided to put it in the circuit and see for himself. He discovered that the metal part of his watch was a conductor! Sienna tested her earrings and found out that they were conductors as well.
