The students’ understanding of the following eight terms that occur in the context of an electric circuit will be deepened in this exercise: potential, voltage, battery, electricity, current, conductor, resistor, and load.
First, by matching word cards showing the explanations with the individual terms, the students will internalize their meanings. Second, by matching the word cards showing the terms from the water circuit, the students will learn the correspondence between an electric circuit and a water circuit.

Information and ideas:
Due to space limitations, not all elements of an electric circuit can be named, for example, switches, ammeters, and voltmeters.
