This week’s lesson on electricity consumption builds upon the previous week’s lesson. However, topics will be re-introduced for newcomers! For students and families continuing on from the previous lesson with a good understanding of your electric bill, this week will allow you to do the actual calculations! Students will think about their activities and the pluggables they use in order to crunch the numbers that add up to a monthly bill! As this lesson again centers around electricity, the introductory text will revisit and review electricity text previously covered with the activities reinforcing concepts not yet supported in other activities.
