4B - Help Needed

The fourth grade teachers are looking for a little help with getting materials ready for our electricity unit we will be doing in science before the end of the year.  The fourth grade classes are looking for any extra strings of Christmas lights you might have.  They can be colored or white, but they need to be the regular size bulbs (not the large ones).  We are also looking for any parents who might have a little time to cut the strings apart (we will show you how) and/or strip the ends of the the wires (see picture included).  We already have some strings that can be cut apart and we have the wire strippers if you need them.  Also, we are looking for some roles of aluminum foil.  



If you have any of the supplies or are willing to help please let me know.

Thanks in advance!
