A explanation with a diagram and animation of how an electric bell works.How Electricity Works
An animated guide to the science of electricity. It covers how it works, how it is measured, how it reaches our homes and green options.What do you know about Electricity?
A fun quiz to see if you know what uses mains electricity and batteries. Make the bulb light up in a circuit and see if you can spot the dangers in a kitchen.Electric Circuits
Make simple circuits by dragging and dropping the items. Learn how to make switches work. A good teacher demonstration tool for use on an interactive whiteboard.Using Electricity
Activities to introduce children to the idea that everyday objects need electricity to work. Children need to decide which objects need batteries and which run from the mains.The Virtual Circuit
A fabulous resource for learning about and experimenting with circuits. Highly recommended for use with an electricity topic.Wired
Wired is a free atmospheric puzzle-platform game where you must wire up electrical circuits to get through. It takes about 8 hours to complete and circuits become increasingly complex as new concepts are introduced.Wired

Circuit activities where you can a range of materials to see if you can complete a circuit. See which conduct electricity and which do not. See also how you can change the effect of the power source.Learning Circuits
Online activities on electricity, circuits, conductors and insulators. There are clear diagrams, information and quizzes. The site works very well as a teaching tool on an interactive whiteboard. Designed primarily for 8 to 10 year olds.
