Electrical symbols to make a circuit

Using the symbols for electricity below, draw four different circuits that will allow an electrical current to flow and to fit the three different criteria.

1. A circuit that will light a bulb, using a closed switch.

2. A circuit that will make the motor move.

3. A circuit that will make the buzzer buzz.


(This one is a bit different)


4. A circuit with an open switch.


Will this one light the bulb, make the motor move or the buzzer buzz? Why?


Use the video below the symbols to help you draw the circuits. Please email me if you have any questions about how to draw the circuits or want to send me the circuits you have drawn.
