What is electricity and where does it come from?
Electricity is a form of energy that is very present in our daily lives. With electricity we can turn on the lights, watch TV... But electricity is flowing around us and often we are not aware of it... How does it work? Where does it come from? Discover this and more in this unit!
The proposed activities help develop cognitive, manual and creative skills and encourage the learning-based reasoning and experimentation, which directly involves the student in the acquisition of new knowledge.
