Worksheet Overview

Electricity is an energy.

It is a flow of charged particles called electrons moving about to make a current.


We use electricity in our homes to power lights, TVs, computers, fridges, ovens, computers and many other things.

Some of our homes now have a smart meter that measures how much electricity we are using.

In this activity, we will investigate electricity.
