Things That Use Electricity

Produced by Teachers TV, this short video is part of the Lesson Planning Pack series. It encourages primary school children to think about the items in a house that use electricity. It can be used as a lesson starter to stimulate thought and discussion about electricity in the household. Heather is late for work so her friend Jason kindly offers to make her breakfast. How many things does Jason use, or does Heather need, that require electricity to work?
