Electricity


We learned about simple circuits this week. We learned about wiring in series and parallel. (Thanks to my friend who was a science teacher, and she let me borrow some of her supplies). At first we just wiring one battery to one light, then we added a switch. Next we tried more batteries and more lights. We did learn how NOT to wire, as we ruined 2 batteries. So he had The Man help him. This was great fun and was right up T's alley. He did not want to give the kit back. He has a birthday coming up, and I see some electrical fun in his future.

E did do her simple circuit with a switch, but she was just not as into this as he was.
