Some toys and most flashlights need an electric current to function. When inserting a battery, it is necessary to observe the polarity: otherwise the appliance will not function.

Information and Ideas:
• The teacher/educator should bring various battery-operated objects, for example, mechanized toys, mobile phones, and flashlights to class.
• Please observe the general safety and hygiene measures and safety instructions in the respective teaching methods as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
