This is a challenging, engaging and enjoyable boardgame, for up to six pupils per set, with 54 question cards on the basics of current electricity including:

·      understanding the terms current, voltage and resistance;

·      conductors and insulators;

·      circuit symbol;

·      circuits diagrams;

·      units and measurement of current and voltage;

·      current and voltage in series and parallel circuits;

·      lamps in series and parallel.

·      Current and voltage vary with number of batteries.

·      Relationship between resistance and current.

Included in this Pack.

·      Game board

·      54 Question cards with questions of varying difficulty

·      Instruction sheet.

Preparation

·      Photocopy Board onto A3 paper or card (Colour and greyscale versions included).

·      Photocopy question sheets onto paper or card (Colour and greyscale versions included) and cut into question cards.

How to Play.

·      Highest score of dice starts

·      Pupils take turns and work their way around the board following the instructions in the squares.

·      A symbol on the board indicates that the pupil takes a question card from the face down pile. If correct they move on 2 spaces.

·      If a player thinks an answer given by an opponent is incorrect they can challenge. If the challenge is correct the challenger moves forward 2 spaces. If the challenge is wrong the challenger moves back two spaces.

·      In the event of a challenge, pupils are encouraged to consult their books but the teacher has a quick-check answer sheet.

Prior Knowledge Required

·      The symbols for switch, resistor, battery, voltmeter, ammeter, motor, buzzer

and able to recognise series and parallel circuits.

·      Metals and non-metals as conductors and insulators.

·      Current is a flow of electrons and metal ions cause resistance.

·      Batteries contain chemicals and provide the push or voltage to current.

·      Voltage is the difference in energy level between two points in a circuit.

·      Comparative resistance of long/short, thin/thick wires.

·      Know that insulators have high resistances and the resistance of all conductors

is comparatively lower.

·      Comparative brightness of identical lamps in series and parallel and the effect

of removing a  lamp.

·      Ammeters are placed in series and voltmeters in parallel.

·      Current is measured in amps and voltage in volts.

·      Current in series and parallel circuits.

·      Voltage in series and parallel circuits.

·      Current and voltage vary with number of batteries.

·      Metal ions causing high and low resistance conductors.

·      Relationship between resistance and current.
