# Circuits!

Last class we got to make our own circuits! What you need to make a circuit is a lightbulb, a battery, a couple wires, and a switch . We were trying to make the light glow. The electricity would go from the battery, through the wires, and into the filament in the lightbulb. The filament doesn’t like electricity going through it, and all the atoms start vibrating and because of that it heats up, and then it lights up. Another cool thing is that when the switch was up, even if the circuit was connected, it wouldn’t glow, but when the switch was down it would glow.  I found this lesson really interesting, but for some reason it was really hard for me to wrap the wires around the the screws on the switch.

This is a video of me making my circuit:

# Rulers! #4

Today in class we talked about rulers. We talked about how in America we use standard measurement, but everywhere else people use metric measurement.

# Atoms #3

In technology we have been learning a lot about atoms. We learned about the three essential parts. Neutrons, and protons, which are in the nucleus, and electrons. We also pictured how small atoms are. They are so small! For example: in order to see the atoms in a grapefruit, you would have to make the […]

# Breakout EDU!! #2
