Review and Test of DC circuits

Today we are doing some field testing of our knowledge of a basic circuit.

First Background information A simple circuit is like a circle of electricity. Electrical energy travels through the circuit from a source (battery) along a path (wire) to an appliance (light bulb). Energy will continue to flow as long as the circle is complete. The battery has two poles (+ and -) and the appliance has two contacts.

Watch the Brainpop movie on Simple Circuits  https://www.brainpop.com/science/energy/electriccircuits/

Read and fill out answers to Circuit fill in  sheet together in your group

2/ when you finish. Construct a simple circuit using the Edison Light up KIt.
