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
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!
