Beverly Gregor Oglesby School

Pupils will be exposed to the uses of batteries and bulbs. Pupils will be able
to explain the difference between series and parallel circuits.
Pupils will have hands on experience with the batteries and bulbs. They will
have to make series circuits with one wire and then two wires. The same will
apply to a parallel circuit. The teacher will make two models on the plywood;
one will consist of three sockets wired together to represent a series circuit.
The other will also consist of three sockets wired together to represent a
parallel circuit. Each will be controlled by their own switches.
Pupils will be able to light bulbs with the batteries using the different
combinations. Also while the teacher holds up the example she/he has made on
plywood. Pupils on a sheet of paper will tell the teacher which example is the
series circuit and which one is the parallel circuit.
Students will have a better understanding of the power of electricity and
