Worksheet Overview

Electricity is so useful!


We have electricity in loads and loads of things that we use every day. Sometimes, that electricity comes from the mains (it has to be plugged in) and sometimes it comes from batteries.


a battery


However, there are even more things we use that don't use electricity.  


In this activity, we will be sorting out things that need electricity from things that don't.


We will also be deciding whether that electrical supply comes from mains electricity or from batteries.


Should be a buzz!!
