Scienceworld: Conductors vs. Insulators

Link to Game

This game is appropriate for students in the fourth or fifth grade. Conductors vs. Insulators is only 1 of 4 games in this section that aim to reinforce the essential concepts of this topic. It reviews the definitions of conductors and insulators and it provides examples of each. It then becomes an interactive game in which students have to decide whether the given object or material is a conductor or an insulator. This is a great way to review electricity toward the end of the unit, and it allows students to check for their own understanding. Once they complete one review game, they can move on the other games. Other games on this page include: What uses an electric current?, Batteries or wall socket? and Which item needs more electricity? Each game should take approximately 5 minutes, which makes it a very time efficient review.
