Conductor or Insulator?

Conductor or Insulator?


We have been testing different materials to find out if they are a conductor or an insulator!

We know that a conductor lets electricity flow through it but an insulator does not.

We put each material into a complete circuit to test whether it was a conductor or not!

Here are our results:

Plastic - Insulator
Copper- Conductor
Rubber - Insulator
Paper  - Insulator
Tin foil - Conductor

We now know that metals are conductors!
Miss Gillespie tested her metal watch to see if it conducted electricity - It did! 

Gracie-Mae in Year 1 said "The electrons are flowing through the complete circuit"
