I want to see and use the concept cartoon relating to electrical circuits but it seems to be none of these. Can anyone help?

Perfect, just what I needed to start my electricity lesson. Would be helpful to have what the Concept Cartoon is before you click on it.

I like the way these work and the 2nd one on electricity is excellent as a starter in lesson 1 of a KS3 electricity topic.
