Conductors and Insulators
By: Blake, Jacob, Dylan
Conductors are substances that have loosely bound electrons, resulting in electrons flowing freely through them. Water has very loose electrons. That is why it is so attractive to electricity. Lighting rods are metal rods that are used to prevent lighting from striking buildings. Metal is a great conductor, that is why it is used for many things.
Insulators are substances that have tightly packed electrons, making it harder for the electrons to move freely. The rubber wire cover help insulate the electricity so you don't get shocked when you touch it he cable. Wood is insulated because it doesn't absorb electricity that we'll.
