What is electricity?

Electricity is a flow of electrons.

HOW SHOCKING!

How do we get the electrons to flow?


The electrons will flow if they have a path to follow.
How about this copper wire?!

I still dont really get it. Can you show me?


Sure! Thats my job!

And what were you saying about copper wire???

The copper wire is like a highway for the current to flow along.

Can you see the wires? The electrons come out of the battery and flow through the wires (like a highway) to the bulb. Cool, huh?!

Would you like to make an electric circuit to show your parents?
