We join the cables to the batteries and the lights to make an electric circuit. If it has been connected right the electric current will be strong enough to light the globe. Some of the people from 5/6C worked together and made light switches using the following things: cardboard, split pins and paper clips. 5/6C had a wonderful time constructing their electrical circuits and we recommend that all...
