Circuits and Switches
In KS2 D and T, children will be taught a little about electricity. In particular they will look at circuits, and switches, and how we use them to control electricity. This quiz is all about that subject. It also looks at other components of a circuit, in addition to keeping safe when using electricity.
Electrical products work by using circuits and switches. Circuits allow electricity to flow through - and so power - bulbs, motors and buzzers. Switches are used to control circuits. They can break a circuit - and so switch bulbs, motors and buzzers off - or complete a circuit - and so switch them on again. Many products work by using electricity. How many items in your house work by using electricity? Probably more than you think. Count them and see.
