The end of the electricity topic meant a challenge, in groups to use an electrical circuit to make a Christmas related model. The groups had to plan, design and build a model relating to Christmas using an electrical circuit. Points were awarded for excellent design, originality and good use of circuits. At the end we had a Rudolf with a light up nose, a snowman whose carrot nose glowed orange, a Stop Here Santa Sign that had Rudolf’s eyes rotating and a christmas quiz where rudolfs nose glows if you get the correct answer. The Christmas quiz was voted the winner.
In p45 we have been learning all about electricity and what a wonderful thing it is. We have made lots of electrical circuits, created our own games using switches and found out what fun you can have with a balloon, some hair and a knowledge of the movement of electrons in an atom. A great explanation of many of these items can be found on Youtube under Bill Nye Science Guy, so check him out! Next week we are going to take all we know about electricity and use it to design and build an electrical Christmas Gizmo DoohDaah.
