Electricity!

We will be studying electricity for the next couple of weeks. It is something that is very important to our everyday lives. It is also something that we often take for granted. In 1879 Thomas Edison produced the first electric lamp. Soon after that, in 1882, the first public electric power stations began operating in London and New York. Imagine that you were growing up in a time (1850Õs) when electricity, as you know it, had not yet been discovered. Write a description of what your life would be like without electricity. What would you do to have fun? How would you create light after dark? How would these things affect a day at school?  Post a comment!

  15. I LOVE this science unit! Life would be very different without electricity if Albert Einstien wouldn’t have discovered electricity. First of all there would be no heaters to heat up our houses or air conditioners to cool houses either. Second they’re would be no clocks to tell time or no lightbulbs to light up houses, street lamps, stop lights or nightlights. Finally no electricity would mean none of the things we are fortunett enough to have.

  21. I think electricity would be one of the things we can’t live without( altho we could adapt). There would be no heaters or air conditioners to heat us up or cool us down.
    also there would be nolamps to light a room.
