Our Electricity lesson plan introduces students to electricity, electric currents, and more. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, in a group, to decide on the top ten items which society would miss the most without electricity and the top ten that society would not miss out of a given list of items that require electricity, utilizing their critical thinking skills. Students are also asked to answer questions about circuits.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define electricity, identify types of electricity, and explain how electric current travels.
