Throughout Science, we have been investigating the items that make good conductors and insulators. In order to do this, the children created a list of items they would like to test and made their own predictions. They then used batteries, wires and bulbs to find out if their predictions were correct. Some of the items they tested included, a ruler, a pencil, tin foil and pipe cleaners. The biggest surprise for most of the pupils was the pencil which was a conductor. They were then given some time to test other materials within the classroom and were amazed to find the taps were conductors too!
