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.
