Electrical Conduction Experiment Write-up Sheet

This worksheet is a full scientific write-up of a conduction experiment which tests the electrical conduction of different classroom materials.

Each part of the scientific method is explained and some parts are partially complete so the children have to fill in the rest.

To complete the experiment and write-up, they will need a simple circuit - battery, wires and some sort of small appliance such as a bulb, buzzer or motor.

Encourage some creative material choices as they perform the experiment and make sure they write down what material it is made from, for example a metal ruler.

Water and water with salt dissolved in it are both interesting substances to hypothesise about and test for conductivity.
