Everyday Electricity

Overview

Students use electricity every day. It is important to know how it works. Why does the light come on when they flip the switch? With a simple knowledge of circuits, students will understand how electrical energy moves from one place to another. Students will provide evidence to describe why the light bulb turned on, including the idea that energy can be transferred from place to place by electrical currents.
