Does it conduct?

Year 4 have been testing objects made of different materials to find out if they conduct electricity.

Simon noticed something interesting about one paper clip, which was made of metal and one, which had a plastic coating – what do you think he found out?

Hannah tested a pair of scissors and found that some parts did conduct electricity but others did not – can you work out which?

    I found out that the metal paper clips conducted electricity but the coloured paper clips didnt because they had plastic around the metal.
