L.C: To construct a series of circuits.
L.C: To identify the name the components in a circuit (including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers
Before we use the equipment to build a circuit, we need to understand what the components are.
This activity is on SeeSaw. You will need to draw lines to match the labels to the circuit components.
(if you are working at home you will need to click on the pdf below - take a screen shot - then draw the lines to match the labels to the components. Once you have finished email the picture to your teacher on Purple Mash)
We now know the names of the components.
Using the equipment in the picture below, you are going to investigate ways to create an electrical circuit to make the bulb light.
What did you notice?
Write about your findings. Remember to use the explanation vocabulary we used last week.
Explain when the circuit did not work and why.
Then explain when your circuit did work.
What did you change?
When creating the electrical circuit, I noticed that _______________________________

Here are the scientific symbols for the components of an electrical circuit.
Only include the components you have used if you draw your diagram using these symbols.
