# Labeling Electrical and Electromagnetic Diagrams

## Students Label Electrical and Electromagnetic Diagrams

Students will use a photo editor / paint program to label basic electrical and electromagnetic diagrams.

Students will draw the wire connections from a DC battery through a fahnestock switch to one or more bulbs illustrating a complete circuit, a series circuit and a parallel circuit.

Students will also label all the components of the circuits such as "copper wire", "12v battery", "fahnestock switch" and "bulb".

Students should label all three electrical diagrams, insert the completed pictures into a Word document and print.

## Instructions:

Label this simple electrical circuit diagram. Download (right click "save picture as").

Save the picture to your "my pictures" folder and then open it in Paint.NET or the photo editor of your choice.

Draw the wires needed to make the circuit and label all the parts in the diagram. Add a title and your name.

Save your finished pictures, insert them into a Word document and print with your name on it.

### Download the electrical circuit diagrams (right click "save picture as").

Make the image diagrams available to the students and have them label all the components and draw the correct connection that will complete the circuits.

There are four parts to a circuit:

1) There is a source of electricity Example: A battery
2) There is a path along which charges can move. Example: A wire
3) There is a switch that opens and closes the circuit. Example: A switch
4) There is some object that uses the electricity. Example: A light bulb

## Draw the connections that will make a complete connection and make the bulb light.

Label the parts of this circuit. Add your name.

Insert the completed diagram into a word document and print.

## Draw a series circuit and label the parts of the circuit. Add your name.

Insert the completed diagram into a word document and print.

## Draw a parallel circuit and label the parts of the circuit. Add your name.

Insert the completed diagram into a word document and print.

## Draw an electromagnetic circuit and label the parts of the circuit. Add your name.

Insert the completed diagram into a word document and print.

You can create a magnetic field by running an electric current through some wire. Demonstrate how you would create an electromagnet using the diagram below. How could you make the magnet stronger?
