In this activity aimed at primary level, children investigate electrical circuits and consider how a safe and reliable circuit, that works, can be made. Using the context of Christmas Lights children use dice to select several components of electrical circuits from an ‘advent calendar’ showing 24 electrical symbols. They then predict whether their circuit will work and explain their reasoning. Produced by Primary Upd8, this resource contains children’s activity sheets and teacher guidance.
