Primary Science: Electricity Activities

Description

Three fun and engaging ideas on how to introduce KS2 pupils to the concept of electricity.

In a role-playing activity deputy headteacher Tony Davies demonstrates how electricity is instant with the use of a skipping rope circuit.

Later his class work out whether they are conductors or insulators in an experiment on circuits involving electric ping pong balls.

Meanwhile teacher Lucy Blackmore, sets her Year 5 groups the challenge to design and create electrical circuit games.

Finally teacher David Aston, and his Year 5 and 6 pupils play a "yes, no" game with a difference.

Pupils have to guess which electrical component is hidden in a box by asking questions as they add a weight to a floating dish.
