BrainPop: Electricity

This short video gives teachers and more importantly, students a quick overview of electricity and the key concepts associated with it. Tim and Moby briefly describe static electricity, electrons, electrical current, electrical circuits, and magnetic fields. The students also have the option to take a short quiz to informally evaluate their knowledge of electricity so far. The quiz can be something that students complete individually or as a whole class. The video is animated, quick, and centers around something students see in their everyday lives. Electricity is something they can relate to because they use it everyday, most times, without even realizing it. Although this video gives a very general overview of electricity, it can be used as part of an introductory lesson about electricity. BrainPop provides teachers and students with hundreds of videos on almost every topic; it is a great tool to utilize as a teacher and student.
