The flip of a switch, the hum of appliances, the ringing of a telephone--the many functions of electricity are too numerous to count. How do all those circuits and wires have the energy to produce the light to brighten up the darkest of rooms, run the fastest of computers, or chill the coldest of refrigerators?
While electricity has been with us since Creation--from the electrical impulses of our own nervous system to the flash of lightning in a summer thunderstorm--it is still a marvelous mystery. You and your family will surely love this most "electrifying" experience, as you study famous inventors and their adventures. This study will allow you to experiment in awe and wonder just as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison did in their day.
Come roam with us through mazes of wires, batteries, and circuits as we delve into the hair-raising, spine-tingling world of electricity!
Topics of this study include:
History of Electricity
Inventors and Scientists
Properties of Electricity
Safety Concerns with Electricity
Electricity in Our Daily Lives
...and much more!
Each day's lesson plan has been written in two levels: Lower Level (elementary grades) and Upper Level (junior/senior high grades), enabling the whole family to learn together!
