Dear Grade 5/6P,
Every year thousands of people around the world are injured or killed through the misuse of electricity.
Recently in Latrobe Valley we had a young electrician who was electrocuted whilst working on a home at Yallourn North.
Now that we have spent some time learning about electricity and the way it works I’d like you to create (in groups of three) a short movie clip to post on our blog discussing the things you need to know about electricity to stay safe. As a group you need to write a script for your movie and think about props that you might need. We’ll use the program ‘movie maker’ to put our safety videos together. Remember your movie needs to be a reminder to people about how to stay safe around electricity.
Good luck with your video…Ms Johnson, Mrs Pearce and I can’t wait to see what you produce!!!
