Power of Nature: Using Electricity 

Power of Nature: Using Electricity is tailored to make the following science curriculum connections: 


Science topic A: Electricity and Magnetism

Students will:

  • understand that household electrical currents are potentially dangerous and not a suitable source for experimentation.
  • demonstrate that a moving magnet can be used to generate electricity.
  • recognise that the amount of electricity we use in our homes is measured in kilowatt hours.
  • interpret and explain the reading on a household electrical meter and efficiency labels on electrical appliances.

Science topic B: mechanisms using electricity

Students will:

  • Identify example applications of electrical devices in the school and home environment and classify the kinds of uses.
  • Recognise the importance of switches and other control mechanisms to the design and operation of electrical devices and identify purposes of switches in particular applications.
