Comparing and Contrasting

Conductors let currents through with little to no resistance, and Insulators stop electrical currents and make them weak. Semiconductors are in between.

Examples

Conductor - Copper, aluminum, gold, and silver

Semiconductor - Silicon, selenium, and germanium.

Insulator - Plastics, Styrofoam, paper, and rubber.

Daily Electricity

Conductors are used in all cords I use to charge electronics.

A Semiconductor can be water and I drink water.

Insulators are also a part of all the cords we use the rubbery outside that stops the current.
