Bright Sparks 4 Kids

We are learning all about electricity.
We have got a new Bright Sparks 4 Kids kit in the school.
Today teacher showed us how to make circuits.
 Tomorrow we look forward to making them ourselves.
We made circuits that lit a bulb (using one and then two batteries).
We made circuits that made a buzzer sound or made a fan rotate (again using one and then two batteries).

We found that if we used two batteries instead of a single battery that the bulb lit brighter, that the motor turned faster and that the buzzer sounded higher.
We even inserted switches so we could turn the buzzer/light/motor on and off.
video
We are really good at figuring out how circuits work!
