What do you know about conductors and insulators?

Use Pearl Trees to answer these questions. What is a conductor and what is an insulator? Can you name some examples for each one. Is there anything else about conductors and insulators that you want to share with everyone?

    A conducter lets power to the bull eg.meatl spoon , rings coins foil a insulatior is to blok the power to the bulb eg:frabric straw elastic band

    The electricity goes through a hole which is called a pylon.
    if the wire is broken the electricity will not work.

    What I know about insulators is that an insulator is an object that is made out of matal E.G: a straw,a pencil,fabric and paper. So We tested out the cur unit and we found out that those same items are called insulators because it won’t light up the bulb in the curcuit.

    A conductor is a metal object including aluminiun foil because when you test it it will light up the bulb in the curciut. When we then tested it out then we got these following materials to work they were :aluminium foil,a key,a silver coin and a bronze coin.

    A Conductors means that when you got three wires a bulb and a battery and connect the wires together and the bulb will light up. But Today we got objects and connect the wires with it and some Conductors work and Insulators never work.

    An insulator is something that doesn’t light up however a conductor light up .conductor works for metal things example for a key or even a pin that is metal.an insulator is something good for plastic things example a paper clip that is not metal.

    A cuduct is a is some thing that’s let’s electricity flow though.
    A insulator is a things that don’t let electricity flow though.

    An insulator Is an object which don’t allow electricity to flow

    I am going to talk about insulators conductors!
    A conductor is a material that allows electricity to flow through it. For example metal and battery these materials allow electricity to floe through them. This is a conductor.
    Now I am going to talk about insulators!
    An insulators are materials that don’t allow electricity to flow through it . For example fabric.This is an insulators.
