BrainPop: Current Electricity

This video from BrainPop describes current electricity and the concepts that relate to it. Tim and Moby describe direct current, alternating current, power plants, generators, transformers, mechanical energy, turbines, magnets, transmission wires, and how electricity travels from power plants to our homes. This video can be used as an introduction to a lesson on current electricity. The students can watch the video as a whole class and then have the opportunity to take a short quiz to “test” their knowledge. The students could have the option to take the quiz as a whole class or individually. BrainPop gives teachers and students access to hundreds of videos, short, informal quizzes, and the opportunity to make concept maps.
