Electricity Teaching Unit

Electricity has always existed in the form of lightning in the sky. In early times people would have identified the force of such electricity by its ability to split trees and create fires. They may also have discovered the fact that certain rocks, such as amber, attracted light objects or that specific areas of land felt 'unusual' due to electric nodes in the earth. Today it is know that electricity is created through a flow of electrons and people have discovered efficient methods for producing and harnessing such power.


The term long Electricity unit allows students to discover how people came to understand that electricity was more than merely lightning in the sky, how energy can be created and harnessed, some of the seemingly infinite uses society has for electricity and methods for conserving and managing electricity effectively. 


This Electricity Unit is broken into four distinct parts. These are cross-­curricular and contain a number of projects and lesson plans for activities. Some of these activities include creating circuits, giving presentations, art and craft activities and completing fun sheets such as crosswords and find­-a-words. Students will have opportunities to revise that which they have learnt and to demonstrate an understanding of the work they have covered.
