Today, Hawthorn have been learning about electricity. We have modelled how electricity flows using tennis balls as electrons. We discovered that a circuit never runs out of electrons, but if we have a gap, electrons can’t be passed on.

We used this to create a switch out of paper clips and split pins, allowing us to turn a bulb on and off.
