Electric Circuits (Jan 28-Feb 1)
This week was all about electric circuits. The children explored 3 different stations. The first station they examined which materials are conductors and which materials are insulators. At the second station they built their own electromagnets by winding copper wire around a nail and hooking it up to a battery. The final station was lemon batteries! They explored the voltage created by a lemon, penny, and nail; then experimented with different numbers of pennies and nails and measured the change in voltage with a voltmeter.
