Foss Science Mag/Elec. Series Circuit

I have a question about defining series circuit. I have found online that it is using more than one receiver, and I have found that it is just when electricity moves in one circle without stopping, but can have just one receiver."Series" to me would mean more than one, just by definition of the word, plus it is in the Advance Connections portion of the Module. Wondering if anyone is smart about this stuff. Thanks

I have had my students stand in a large circle and hold hands to represent a series circuit. You can have more than one D-cell in the series circuit, but you have to be careful of the orientation. A series circuit just has one path that the electricity can follow.

Hope this helps. I just finished this module. On to Bones...
