Electricity is something we take for granted until we loose it. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, many people along the East Coast still have not had their power restored. If you have well water you don't have water either because you need electricity to pump water from your well. I hope power is restored to everyone very soon.
This week's curriculum tie-in is an ode to electricity.Wired by Anastasia Suen takes middle grade readers on a journey of how electricity gets to their homes.
Anastasia has an activity and games for students to try. For more information visit her at her web site.
