The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, further research assignments, the reference to technology, and the reference to values.

The experiment comprises three subexperiments:
· The lamp should light up
· Switching on and off
· Electro quiz

How must cables, batteries, switches, and other electrical components be joined together so that, for example, an incandescent lamp lights up or a buzzer makes a sound? The students will discover how they can correctly close and interrupt an electric circuit and draw diagrams of their circuits.

Notes:
· Observe the safety information in the instructions 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.
