Grade 6 Science Electricity and Electrical Devices

For children in Grade 6 learning about matter and energy 

From the Curriculum:

Students will already be familiar with many of the uses of this convenient source of energy. Building on their prior learning, students will explore devices that convert electricity to other forms of energy. The building of circuits should further strengthen students’ understanding of how electrical systems work.

Big Ideas:

  • Electrical energy can be transformed into other forms of energy.
  • Other forms of energy can be transformed into electrical energy.
  • Electrical energy plays a significant role in society, and its production has an impact on the environment.
  • Society must find ways to minimize the impact of energy production on the environment.
