Lightbulb Moments – Grade 6 Physics

This term Grade 6 have been studying physics and are currently learning about circuits. This unit applies the concept of energy to electrical circuits. In particular, they learn that while current is not used up in the circuit, energy is. The students had to select and use appropriate equipment to investigate circuits which include cells, bulbs and switches; identify patterns in their results and draw conclusions about series circuits. Each group was successful in constructing a circuit and enjoyed the hands on approach!
