How electricity works

With Learning Circuits we can learn the way electricity works. From an English learner's point of view, it is good reading practice while we get familiar with the name of everyday objects and increase our knowledge of something we usually take for granted.

Before we start off doing the activity, we must select the number of people who are doing the activity, choose a name, create our own character and choose a colour of our liking. This process will just take us seconds, so don't be put off by it.

The interactive activity is divided into six parts: The basics of electricity; circuits; diagrams; switches; changing circuits; and insulators and conductors.

In the first place we are given a short explanation of each of the six parts and then we move on to do an interactive activity. We also have a glossary at out disposal to check the meaning of difficult words.
