Making a lemon battery

Lesson: Science

Class: Mrs Pickering & Miss Morgan - Class 4 Year: 2019 - 2020

This week in science we started our new topic electricity, we found out about that parts in a basic circuit then explored using a lemon as a battery in our own circuit. Unfortunately, our bulb did not light, we thought this was because the voltage of the bulb was too high. We enjoyed building the circuits with zinc screws, pennies, lemons, a bulb and wires.
