- Germanium

- Silicon

- Cotton

- Wool

- Marble

- Sand

- Paper

Comparing and Contrasting

In conductors electric charges are free to move from place to place.

In insulators electric charges are fixed in one place, can't move.

How you can find these in everyday life:

When you turn the TV on your batteries act as an insulator to the remote.


In electricity we use metal wires to conduct electricity.
