Students in Mrs. Murphy's class have been learning about electricity. They have talked about positive and negative charges in static and current electricity. To learn in a hands-on way, the students created a flashlight on a craft stick using a mini LED light, watch battery, binder clips, and some copper wire/tape. Students were challenged as they worked to make sure that the batteries were placed on the correct side of the charge which would then power their lights. The students had lots of fun once they got their lights working!
