Build on your classmate’s analogy by providing additional scenarios

 

A series circuit is when the  electricity has a one way flow, this is powered by a conductor that runs  through one or two components.

The analogy that I choose is lights,  because it is close to the holidays I found that Christmas lights are a  form of series circuit. When you grab your Christmas lights and plug  them in to see if they come on and find out that half or the whole  strand is dead, what makes this happen?

The holiday lights are more commonly  known as series connection, if you take two bulb, one battery, and wire  together they should light up but once you remove one of these lights it  goes dark, you can do this with 10 to 20 bulbs in a row but once you  remove one bulb from the end or middle they go out. There is a wire  inside of the little bulbs that helps prevent the bulb from shorting  out, the current runs through the wire and not the filament which makes  the lights go out and light up.
