This step-by-step lesson plan will follow the experimental design steps, allowing students to learn about conductors and insulators of electricity with a hands-on approach. Students will be testing various materials in a closed circuit to determine if they are insulators or conductors. They will make predictions, write a hypothesis, find results, and a conclusion of the experiment using the Conductor/Insulator Worksheet.
Note: You will need to make sure you have electric circuit materials available: bulbs, batteries, wires
