This resource has an electric motor and two bulbs arranged so they can be independently controlled by push switches. Useful for a starter to introduce more complex switching arrangemants or as a plenary to a lesson on circuits.

Switches 2 Flash

An alternative resource to 'Switches 1'. The circuit is comprised of a bulb and an electric motor controlled independently by toggle switches. Additionally, a push switch placed parallel to the bulb demonstrates the effect of a short circuit.

The Electric Bell Flash

This animation demonstrates how an electric bell works. Pressing the push-switch works the bell in slow motion so that the actions can be easily understood. Parts can be labelled too.

Series and Parallel Circuits Flash

A simple illustrated explanation with narration of series and parallel circuits. Test your understanding with a multiple choice quiz.

Circuit Diagrams Flash

A simple narrated tutorial explaining how to draw simple circuits and the symbols used to represent them.
