Electrical Energy

Recently in science we have been learning all about the different types of energy. We have been learning about light energy, heat energy, and electrical energy. Today students worked more hands on with electrical energy. Students were given a battery, a flashlight light-bulb, and a piece of foil (that acted like a wire.) They were also given a piece of paper that had many different ways the battery, light-bulb, and foil could be put together. They first had to guess whether they thought the light-bulb would light and then they had to work together in a small group to see if they could get it to work. They did a great job of working together and had a great time. Above is a picture of one group working together!
