Conductor and Insulator Tester

Here are pictures of our circuit testers that we made using the instructions in the Tops Science Electricity book. The students loved making them because they used everyday household items (aluminum foil, battery, and a light bulb). I had several students who made them at home and came back to tell me about it (which is always music to a teachers ears :)
The lesson had students teamed up to test various objects around the classroom and record as either a conductor or insulator.
