To learn more about moving electrons we built a lemon battery. The children worked diligently to connect all of the wires to the nails, pennies, and light bulb but we could not light the bulb using the lemons. The class had a great attitude towards the experiment, patiently and creatively solving problems. We did find new ways to use the batteries and lemons to get a brighter light from the bulb.
Our next experiment [#8] is an exploration of magnet poles. If you have magnets at home that we can use in class please let me know. It would be wonderful if we had a set of magnets for every child tomorrow.
