This KS2 Science quiz will take you on a tour of electrical circuits, looking at how they work and some of their parts - such as batteries, switches and wires.
Electrical circuits are closed paths for currents to flow and they are usually made of components joined by wires. Have you ever counted how many electrical items you have in your house? And would you remember to include those that use batteries? We have become very reliant on electrical goods since the first modern battery was invented by Allesandro Volta in 1800. At the flick of a switch we can have things our ancestors could only have dreamt of!
How much do you know about electrical circuits? Why are electric wires coated with plastic or rubber? What do switches do? What is another name for batteries? Take this quiz to find out!
