Week 4 Homework: Electricity
This term we are exploring electricity in science!
Think of an electrical item that you use every day. Answer the following questions:
- What is the item?
- What is it used for?
- How does it use electricity? Is it battery operated or does it need to be plugged in?
- Before electricity what would you do instead of using this item? (at least 2 sentences in your answer)
Here is an example of what you might do:
This item is used to wash clothes, towels and bed linin. The washing machine is plugged into the electricity in my house. Before there was electricity people used to wash their clothes in a bucket or in a river. This would have taken a long time.
