There are LOTS of cool links coming up in the blog post. Explore them. Try them out. You will learn stuff!

Tim and Moby at brainpop have lots to say on this topic. Here are links to one, two, three of their videos.

Here is Mr Dickinson’s “soldier’s marching” analogy: Electric Circuit

This site has really good, easy to follow information on all matters concerning electric circuits. We will use this online circuit construction site as well. And watch this: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2monVkCkX4[/youtube]

As with any new topic there is new vocabulary to learn. Find out the meaning of the following electricity terms:-

**circuit, series circuit, parallel circuit, current, voltage, potential difference, resistance, diode, ammeter, voltmeter, amperes, volts, ohms**

Draw correct symbols for the following pieces of electrical equipment:-

**lamp, cell, battery, voltmeter, ammeter, resistor, fuse, switch**
