How to make Street light model for students at home step by step?

In this video we will show steps by step video instructions on how to build street light working model at home easy way.

First take a large size rectangular cardboard and paint it with brown color. Create road on that cardboard, place a small house in the center of it and stick plastic trees around the house with hot glue as show in video.

Take a led bulb and pass its red and black color wire through the straw to form the street light pole. Similarly, take another straw and follow the steps to create second street light pole.

Stick both the street light poles on the road with the help of hot glue. Take two 9 V batteries. Attach one of the batteries to the wires coming from the led light and check to see that the blue led light glows.

Now connect the second led light pole to the second 9 V batteries and observe that the green led light glows. This completes the street light model.
