➤ P R E P A R A T I O N
Find a small lamp or desk light that you can use for the introduction activity. It would be good to have a power strip or extension cord as well, so that children can easily see when the light is plugged in and when it is unplugged.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Display the light in a place where everyone can see it, but leave it unplugged for now. Say “To start our lesson today, I’m going to turn on this light.” Attempt to turn on the light several times while the children watch.
1) Why won’t this light turn on? (It’s not plugged in.)
2) Why do we need to plug it in? (It has electricity/power.)
3) If it’s not plugged in to the power, will it ever work? (No.)
