• ### watcher 3 stream

1. 1. An electric current is a flow of electrons through metal wires. The electrons are tiny particles of matter called electrons that jump from atom to atom. These tiny electrons are so very small they can’t be seen. It takes energy to make them move So you can’t see electricity, so electromancy has thinking models to help you understand. But don’t confuse ‘seeing’ electricity with seeing the effects a current can produce . 3 Engage Explore Explain Elaborate Extend Evaluate Elicit

5. 5. PRACTICAL How could you make the bulb bright and the motor run fast? Prove this with ‘spark stream’ readings This will test your skill. Set up this circuit. Add an ammeter 9 Now add a bulb in series with the motor. Does it still work as well? Engage Explore Explain Elaborate Extend Evaluate Elicit
