Conductor

materials that freely allow the flow of electrons with very little resistance.

Semiconductor

materials that do not allow electrons to flow freely but do not directly stop them either.

Insulator

materials that stop the flow of electrons.

Comparing & Contrasting

Semiconductors have more resistance than conductors but less than insulators.

Conductors allow electrons to flow except for semiconductors and insulators those two both stop the flow of electrons.

Examples

Conductors- water, copper, and Iron.

Semiconductors- silicon

Insulators- Grass, Dry air, and Rubber

Daily Life (for insulator)

Some real world situations could be a charger from a phone. When you plug it in there is an insulator on the outside. So when ever I touch it, I don't get shocked because it stops the flow of electrons on the outside.

Daily Life (for semiconductor)

The computer chip in the laptops we use for school.

Daily Life ( for conductor)

A swimming pool because if you stuck a hair dryer in a swimming pool electrons would travel all around the water shocking you.
