Transcript of Electricity

Fossil Fuels are made out of Natural gas, Coal and Oil. There formed form Fossils. A Fossil is the remains of a very old plant or animal.
Why did some areas not experience power outages?
Fossil Fuels
-go to Electricity blendspace tile 2
-write the 3 most "shocking" facts


Quarter 3 PowerSchool check and 70% tracker

1. Go to tile 4.
2. Watch the video and take notes on the 3 types of electricity.
1. Get an 'electricity uses' envelope and a piece of chalk.
2. Draw a pie chart on the table to show how much electricity each item uses.
3. Compare your pie chart.
Could we live without electricity?
New Unit!
-when you finish the Christmas Lights activity, watch the video on tile 5
-then do the rest of the activities
Electricity Activities
-Begin where it says "Balloon and rice crispies"
-Complete all the activities
-Call me when you finish
When finished with
Snap Circuits lab,
watch the video on
tile 8 to get your notes.
Be sure to use the checklist.
-go to www.socrative.com, room #122088
-take electricity self-check
Snap Circuits
-Read the directions
-Fill out the predictions column
-Go to tile 7
-Play the game to complete the worksheet
Snap Circuits

Have your homework out so I can check it (back of your notes page)
part 2
Assessment is open note CARDS
Go to tile 11
-download the file
-fill out the worksheet as you
go thru the Blobz module
-email it to me when you finish, then call me
Create StudyBlue flashcards for the
electricity unit
(tile 12 if you need the link)
Plan your Assessment
-download the file from tile 12
-read it closely
Example by
Juan and Hiram
This assessment is DUE
at the end of class

Official Quiz
room #122088
copy these definitions
Energy Transformations Lab
Goal: How is electricity transformed into radiant energy, thermal energy, or mechanical energy?

1. voltage causes electrons to move from 1 atom to another
2. as electrons bump into each other, they create thermal energy
3. the faster electrons bump each other, the more thermal energy they creat
4. some materials get hot enough to emit visible radiation
5. the hotter the material gets, the more radiation it emits

1. Voltage causes electrons to move from one atom to another.
2. Electrons travel through a conductor (ex: wire) and arrive at a piece of metal (usually in a motor).
3. The electrical current magnetizes the metal in the motor, causing the motor to move (mechanical energy).
4. The motor uses this mechanical energy to power the device.
-Cut out the pieces of paper (make 2 piles, keep the titles)
-Follow with me thru the notes
-When correct, glue them to the back of your notes page

Get your coat and be back asap

Rally Robin:
How do you use electricity?
1. Turn in your electricity activities lab
2. Take out your day one notes from last class
-words are on Electricity Blendspace tile 10
-Find one thing on you that is powered by electricity.
-On your sticky note, write how you think electricity works to power it.
Exit Ticket:
Use your notes to explain in scientific terms
how the device you chose in the PDN works
Electrical to Mechanical
Electrical to Thermal to Radiant
How can you use a
to show these steps?
You have created an ELECTROMAGNET!
