After the success of making cards with electrical circuits I decided to guide the girls in creating ‘bogles’ using dough. I was fortunate to obtain the dough from our science department. The year 6 girls had been studying electricity in their science lessons.
How fortunate! I found this clip really useful:
There are a number of you tube videos on making and creating play dough for this purpose. The girls helped each other to get the current to run through the dough to light up the LED lights. The girls made some interesting ‘bogles’ as well as solving problems with making the lights work.
