A complete circuit where everything is connected. Electricity can easily flow through it. closed circuit
An incomplete circuit, where there is some part of the circuit that is NOT CONNECTED. Electricity CANNOT flow through it. open circuit
A material that does NOT conduct electricity well. Examples include rubber, plastic, and wood. insulator
A material that DOES conduct electricity well. Examples include metals. Conductor
