Check out this awesome electrical energy mini investigation! Included you will find clear directions for students and teacher. An objective is embedded as well as supplemental worksheets to track the students learning. You will need some basic components such as wiring, battery, light bulb, and then a variety of materials to be tested for conductibility such as nails, rubber, plastic, aluminum foil, combs, staples, paperclips, etc. This activity engages students in understanding which materials are conductors and which ones are insulators. They will develop their understanding of the material that allow for the flow of electrons and will love doing it!
