Electricity for Kids

Electricity

Electricity is one of the basic forms of energy. It is associated with electric charge, a property of atomic particles such as electrons and protons. Electric charges can be stationary, as in static electricity, or moving, as in an electric current. Electricity can be generated from many different sources. It can be sent almost instantly over long distances and can also be stored. Moreover, it can be converted efficiently into other forms of energy. Because of this versatility, electricity is an integral part of our modern life.

Grade: 5 - 12
The lesson explains how fossil fuels, especially coal, are used to generate electricity in thermal power plants.
2:10
 

Intro to Generating Electricity
Grade: 5 - 12
A presentation on electricity generation.
5:15
 

Electricity and Matter - Conductor and Insulators
Grade: 5 - 12
A presentation on properties that make some elements and materials conductors of electricity, while other materials are insulators. It explains electron orbitals and shells, free electrons, valence electrons, conductivity and resistance.
8:30
 

Physical Science - Ohm's Law
Grade: 8 - 12
The lesson explains Ohm's Law. Ohm's Law states that electric current between two points is directly proportional to voltage applied and inversely proportional to resistance between the points.
