MATERIALS THAT CONDUCT ELECTRICITY

1. Materials that allow electricity to flow throught them are called conductors.
2. Materials that do not allow electricity to flow through them are called non- conductors.
3. Non - conductors cannot complete a circuit.
4. Conductors can be used to complete a circuit.

CONDUCTORS

UNIT 4 ELECTRICITY(LESSION 1)

1. The objects below can be used to make a complete circuit.
    ~ battery , connecting wires , bulb holder , bulb .
2. A complete circuit makes the bulb light up.
3. The bulb lights up brighter when a battery is added to the circuit. This is because more electricity flows through   the circuit.
4. The bulb lights up dimmer when a battery is removed from the circuit.
