BASIC SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
SMASE – ASEI PDSI METHOD
TOPIC: BASIC ELECTRICITY
Lesson One – Conductors and Non – conductors
Lesson Two – Sources of Electricity
Lesson Three – Components of a circuit
Lesson Four – Uses of Electricity
TIME – 40 Minutes each.
By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:
1. explain how electricity is produced (generated) and used.
2. explain how electricity travels (conducted) from one point to another

Electricity is very useful at home, offices, in school, etc. Most of our home appliances depend on electricity. For example, if there is no electricity, the following items will not work – television set, water heater, etc. The concept of electricity will enable pupils to understand and appreciate the importance of electricity in our daily life.
The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:
Wool, fur or silk. Hard rubber rod or comb, Glass rod, Dry cell (1.5v), Bar magnets, Nails, pieces of paper, ropes, threads. Light bulbs, Connecting wires, Circuit board, Lamp holders, Switch key, Pins. Bar magnets, Iron fillings, Paper clips, Coins, Rubber bands
If there is no electricity, the following items will not work – television set, water heater, etc. The pupils understand this fact very. Without power by PHCN, no light or any home appliances will work.
