Special Notes or Considerations:

WARNING: creating a short circuit and leaving it connected for even a short amount of
time can cause the wires and battery to heat up. This can cause burns, start fires and
even cause battery acid to leak. Do not allow students to leave a circuit connected for a
long while. Insist on using the knife switch to connect and disconnect circuits.

BREAKABLE WARNING: The light bulbs are glass and should be treated with
care. Also if too much current is supplied to the bulbs the filament will burn and the bulb
will be useless. Use only two batteries maximum to light the bulb.
