Classroom Ideas

Can be used to start a Science topic or DT topic about electricity. The children could identify all the everyday household objects that use electricity and draw and label them identifying where the mains is attached to the household item. The teacher could also have pictures of the everyday items in the clip and also items that don't use electricity that are found around the house. The children could then sort the electrical items from the non-electrical items. The teacher could also discuss with the class about the dangers of these household items if they are misused.
