Electricity: it's electric

Produced by the Hamilton Trust, these resources give details of seven lessons on electricity. This includes lesson plans, practical activities and all student materials. The lessons reinforce students' understanding of simple circuits and the use of symbols to draw them. They go on to investigate which materials are the best electrical conductors and use this knowledge to make switches. Students wire plugs and find what happens to a bulb’s brightness when circuits are changed. The lessons are: * What is a circuit? * Mains electricity vs batteries * Electrical conductors * Cables and plugs * Switches * Brighter bulbs * Scientists
