Ever wondered how electricity is generated? Want to understand how motors work? Interested in building your own hand-crank motor? The Motors & Generators activity kit by Thames & Kosmos contains 25 different experiments to help children learn how simple electric motors and generators work. The Experiment Manual has instructions for building a wide array of electrical devices, including transmissions, circuits and conductors, motors, and generators! Each type of device is accompanied by a section in the manual explaining the hows and whys of the concept. The manual also contains experiments with magnetism and instructions on how to build a compass. This kit would be an excellent addition to science lessons about electricity, such as the grade 6 unit on electricity and electrical devices in the Ontario curriculum.
