This week, the girls are learning about electricity and circuits. The hands-on activity was to set up a simple circuit with a light bulb and battery. The light bulb had a faint light.
We taped more batteries together and the girls saw how the light would get brighter. With more voltage, the light became significantly brighter.
Another experiment we did today was to make a simple switch to turn the light bulb on and off.
Both the girls enjoyed these activities and were excited to learn more about electricity.
